Blake POLL: Would You Pay To Read Your Local News Online? Amarillo Globe-News To Start Charging Online Fee

If you get your local news from the Amarillo Globe-News, you will now have to pay to view it online.

How would you feel if you had to pay for your local news? And I am not talking about a newspaper, but online. News outlets all across the country have started charging to view local content, something that has irritated people who read their news online.

It has turned out to be a bad thing for these news outlets, causing them to fail and putting themselves out of business. But this is exactly what the Amarillo Globe-News will start implementing immediately.

Me personally, I don’t read the newspaper because I don’t subscribe to it, therefore I don’t pay. But why should I pay when I can read the exact same thing online for free? This exact reason here could be by why the Amarillo Globe-News and newspapers all across the country have started to charge.

Newspaper subscribers have dropped across the country, causing them to raise rates and charge for online viewing. Could this be a devastating blow to the Amarillo Globe-News since other media outlets in town produce the same news without charging?
