Specs of Salons Subscription System

vocaljess Re:i'm still not convinced (197 comments)

no, i don't subscribe to magazines and i refuse to pay for television. i admit, i'm odd that way.

from a business point of view, perhaps salon did the right thing by moving news coverage into the premium slot right when news was a hot ticket, but from a moral standpoint i think they were dead wrong. information should be free, especially when that information is news coverage of events that could change every aspect of the world we live in. a better way to go would be that of public radio... solicit donations but don't require them, and don't shut people off from important information if they choose not to or simply cannot pay.
