Freedom isn't always free

Freedom Communications, publisher of the Orange County Register, plans to charge $3.95 a month for an online-only subscription to its Valley Morning Star newspaper in Texas. Those without a subscription will be able to access the site for 75 cents a day.

This is the first time a Freedom paper has charged for online access. The plan is laid out in a story that seems like it was written by the PR department.

Hope they don't have plans to spend the profits.
Right, potential readers won't pay far less to have it delivered but they will shell out 75 cents for a wealth of information from that newspaper online that they can't get from another source?

My goodness, is Willy Wonka in charge there!
