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 don't like paying for news?"

Why not? It's the fruit of someone else's labor.

Why? There are too many free sites to get news from. I read newspapers in Europe for free everyday. Much better than anything in this country that want to charge you for.

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

You are cheap and spoiled. I am, too, as are most of us. But really, it makes sense that they have to charge. They have to pay for reporters and journalists and editors (and good reporters and journalists and editors cost money), even if not for paper and ink and delivery boys.

Start Croyle, do you only read old copies of the KC Star? I might have some bad news for you about Brodie . . .

I pay for the WSJ. I value the journalism. Of course, I'm intelligent and care for original content.

TL;DR: I do.

The bigger question is who pays for newspapers at all...

Nothing says "I'm intelligent" like saying "I'm intelligent".

There are too many sources for free news, even local news, that I wonder what the point is. They probably shouldn't be charging as much as if they were actually delivering to you, but companies can't take a decrease in revenue.
