Earlier this year the media magnate Rupert Murdoch did the most stupid thing he could ever have done. He asked money for his news. He introduced a 2 pounds/week fee (or 1 pound/day) for his online The Times and The Sunday Times. The number of visitors dropped radically and it is quite normal. You do not need any high class Ivy League white collar guy to tell you this. It is really obvious. Nobody is that stupid to pay money for something what you can get for free. News should be for free.

If he continuous like this probably he will be out soon from this news business. Print a newspaper and ask some money for it, but to upload a news to a website .... even though they have to pay those high class columnists and reporters. If you do not want to pay for something which should be for free just look for Google News. It is for free!
