Has the Wizened of Oz won the first round in the battle of paid content? With the announcement that readers of on-line news arriving via Google will be able to click through to five stories a day on a paid site such as The Wall Street Journal, but if they try a sixth time they will come up against a subscription page. OK… That’s not such a big fucking deal, you might think… But it might just be the thin end of the wedge, leading to the senile old geezer's master plan to make you pay for all the really shitty stuff News Corp churns out. Personally, I wouldn’t touch anything of his with a long, shitty stick… Well, maybe Wendy, when he finally pops off and she gets all the loot. Although, on second thoughts, considering who’s been handling the merchandise, I’ll pass on that.
And you’ll have to pay for the Somalia Gazette!
