Dominic Ponsford, of the Press Gazette, has written an interesting critique of The Times new website. I haven't got a clue if his points are valid as I haven't paid to access it. But that doesn't stop me having a view, as usual.
It's not that I can't, and it's not that I don't think Murdoch hasn't got a perfect right to milk us for even more money if he wants to. But why, when I can get similar news content on various other sites, would I part with £60 (or is it £100? Could check, can't be arsed). Much better to rely on blogs running re-hashed, half-baked stories and peddling ill-thought out opinions to get the truth.
I shall be fascinated to see their webstats for their first month behind the paywall. I wonder by just how much they will risk inflating them to keep advertisers happy.
