'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Should Online News Be Free?

Should online news be free? Rupert Murdoch and his News International Company certainly think not hence the reason why readers will have to pay to read their online services.

News Inc has already pulled the plug on link sites such as NewsNow and this is just the beginning. Payment to access their online output is only months away.

Our recent forum 'Do you buy a news paper' poll and subsequent comments certainly got many of our members hot under the collar. Click here to see how the poll is shaping up.

The following round table discussion highlights what we, the reader may face in the future.

You'd have to be one sad b******d to subscribe to an online bulls**t tabloid.

UK tabloids are a disgrace to journalism and writing. I hope you all crash and burn.

This whole thing makes me ******** furious. I'll try and find the link to NewsNows government petitition to protect the freedom of linking to content. But you are right RGS, who the hell is going to pay for this service when news is freely distributed elsewhere? I say screw Murdoch, there's many other sources to get my information from.

As an aspiring Journo myself i have to agree its the correct call. I personally wouldn't want to dedicate my life to publishing stuff for newspapers. hoping for income, when most people are accessing it for free. Murdoch owns the Times and other big corporations so isn't just tabloid. Would you want to pay for a chocolate bar, when you can have it for free online??
