Newsday Has a Brilliant Idea…Brilliant

Formerly Tribune owned, Long Island’s Newsday is making the leap to asking readers (gasp) on the Internets (eep) to PAY. Like money and everything. For reals.

It takes some mind-boggling stupidity to make this a revolutionary idea. Yep, paying for content.

They call it a “pioneering Web model” because they are teaming up with the local cable company for distribution. You mean a company that charges for television when it’s normally and for all intents and purposes available for FREE?!
