    Newspapers in the most trouble are those who give away their content for
    free.
    Many small town and small city dailies never went on-line with their news
    to hand out for free what they expected their historic print subscribers to pay for.
    How many restaurants hand out free food if you come in the back door while
    charging full price to those who come in the front door? The major dailies could
    learn a hell of a lot from the country bumpkin papers that had the common sense not to give away for free what they were charging others for.
    Even prostitutes know that once you give I away for free, many will no longer
    expect to pay.
