First thing in the morning (writes Denise on Europe Today) I get in and check various websites like the New York Times and the Times of London to see what’s going on in the world. Soon I may mot be able to, as the owner of the Times says he plans to charge me to access the news pages of his website from next year. And Murdoch isn’t alone in considering a charge.
Rupert Murdoch says journalism is not cheap and shouldn’t be free. But while this is a fair point, critics argue many people will just stop going to their websites and stick with the free ones.
What about you? Would you pay to read news on the internet?
