Letter to the editor | East Bay Express on San Francisco Chronicle Paywall



"Newsgathering Was Never Free," Seven Days, 4/3
A Desperate Effort
It wasn't really a choice to give away content for free. Basically, online publishers were trying to compete with AOL. I think it's just a desperate effort by the Chronicle to improve its revenue streams but I guess one person who pays for the subscription offsets the loss of whatever their free readership is.
