Quote of the Day…

Hacks and editors take note, John Gapper of the FT:

“Does The Guardian still think it produces commoditised general news for which people will not pay online?”

Some forms of ‘news’ worth more than others?

  • Well, you can pay for the Kindle version of The Guardian + The Observer, £9.99/month (same as the price for The Times + Sunday Times). If you buy more than 10 paper copies a month, it is worth it.

  • SK

    Unless there’s some kind of cartel approach, whereby each major newspaper outlet agrees to sell its wares behind a common paywall (is that even legal?), then I don’t see it ever really catching on.
