Who pays for newspapers online?

I hate paying for news.

The MPLS star tribune gives you 20 articles a month. But I am finding it harder to limit it to 20.

What makes me mad is the price. $52.00 a year seems a bit steep considering they don't need to print or deliver the paper. And I would read less then I would with a real paper. THEN after the INTRO price It goes up to 2.00 a week. so 100.00 a year

I don't want to go off on a rant here......so I will ask

Who is paying for a paper, magazine etc. Things that you could get other places.

Not ESPN insider or online only content.

Thanks-Yes I know I am cheap

I read the KC Star online. It's paid for by the annoying ads, but with a good ad-blocker it's not bad. I used to have the paper delivered, but the delivery became so inconsistent I dropped it.

Nobody. That's why all the newspaper companies are going broke.

I get called by the local papers constantly to advertise.


It isn't worth what they want to charge. I feel sorry for them, though.

Yes and ad blocking will eventually kill all the good stuff we get online... Eventually I predict all newspapers will charge a subscription fee.

I should have clarified that they want me to advertise in their paper.

What really stinks about that is that I look at papers from places that I have lived., KC, DSM, MPLS, a few others.

Who can afford to pay for all of those? Even with free trials each month.

Like I said-I am cheap.

I buy a paper and read it while I'm having lunch. It's relaxing but **** it makes me feel like such an old man.

I like to read the KC Star, STL Post-Dispatch and Columbia Tribune online. I've thought about subscribing to each of them, but that would be very costly!
