The theme is back:
Magid: News tax needed.
NYT candyass poll: Half would pay for news:
Paradoxically, in every country, the people who were willing to pay the most for news online were the people who already pay the most for news: avid newspaper readers.
I fail to see the paradox. This is not going away. An entire industry has retooled itself into bankruptcy. It refuses to consider that those who deliver the bits which are its product, translated, are profiting from having captive millions of subscribers who only go online because "content" is there.
We won't pay because we've paid.
Big Pipes profit, content makers starve. Is there an economic vomit other than that which I, doglike, keep returning to?
