For instance perhaps editorials might be free, while local news costs a quarter and national news 50 cents. Perhaps specialized coverage could cost $20- for an article with special expertise.

By reporting news with and agenda in mind and also by suppressing news based on profitability conerns. I have found very useful information from friends, groups , forums , social networking sites.. News media information is so much polarized towards making some kind of sensation..

I intend not to pay for anything and finding I have been duped into a portion of an article like WSJ or FT often does is wrong. Part of the internet is speed and consuming times finding dead ends is the same as broken links. Maybe if the Democrats did not control the media it could continue to run at a profit rather than a loss and cost.

What would be a fair price for reading this one post? What would be a fair price for a 1 year subcription to this post?
On the other hand, newspaper subcription have only made up a fraction of the cost of producing a newspaper. And part of the reason for low subscriptions was the value of lots of subscribers to advertizers.
What am I, as a reader, worth to a blogger?
I ?donated? 50$ to Calculated Risk, because it is a daily must read for me – but really, it is a small part of the “site” because of the links to Roubini, Naked Capitalism, Ritzholtz, etcetera.
Undoubtedly, I would sample far fewer sites, and certainly not be a daily reader is I contributed 50$ to each site yearly.
What do you think a daily reader should pay to read you?
