The Globe and Bail
Welcome to When Good Newspapers Go Bad. The Globe and Mail's website has launched Insider Edition, a desperate attempt to force a new revenue stream. A great deal of their online content now requires a paid subscription. I've checked it out, and it appears most of their content now demands that you fork over $14.95 a month. Even those who get the Globe and Mail delivered to their front door now have to pay $6.95 for full access to their website.
I've now removed this site from the news section of Links and I shant return to it. I'll get my online news from another source...another free source.
This trend bites and I hope it doesn't continue. It's irritating enough navigating through subscription sites like the New York Times and Toronto Star that are free. I hate it when good newspapers go bad.
