L.A. Times Goes Pay Site?
What the heck is going on with the Los Angeles Times?
I'd read a few weeks ago that they were changing their web site to pay- only. That's a bummer if only because I read stuff on their site fairly regularly. Sure enough, after a week or two you couldn't get to any of their news stories unless you "joined" the site, although they said it was just $1.00 a month to start.
I wasn't gonna pay it. After all, if I paid a dollar for every news site I frequent that would add up to some money. But I was bummed, especially when I'd see a title and a link that looked interesting only to click on it and get the "pay first" message.
Then a couple days ago that message went away. Now it's back to the way it used to be and I can read to my heart's content, unless this is just a temporary glitch. Or, maybe they decided the pay scheme wasn't working? I'm hoping for the latter.
