I don't really read the NYTs, but I'll take a different view just to keep things lively. So, I know everything on the internet is supposed to be free. But...don't you think it's fair for the journalists to get paid for the work they've done? The sentiment so far has been "great, thanks NYT. I'll just go somewhere else where the news is free". That's fine, but I think eventually you will get what you pay for. So what if all the major papers switch to a paywall? Will we be left with only cheap reporting or rehashing of other's stories?
