It seems worse than I feared.The folks at nationmedia decided to go the way of the East African Standard and make most of their website pay to view.I have several problems with this
1$60 for an annual subscription is waaaaaay too expensive.Who are they targeting?For that $60 there should be exclusive web content,video and audio too.The NY Times charges a similar fee for times select and I must say it is worth it.If you are going to charge that much then make it worth our money!
2.Why in God's name is an editorial cartoon premium content?!So much of the Nation site is premium content that now the Standard which started this offers more to read than the Nation!
Anyway here is my suggestion for anyone who may be interested.I would like to set up a paypal account where we can pool our money, pay the subscription then all those who paid would have the password so as to read the Nation as they please.What do you think?Anyone interested?
