LOS ANGELES: LAT to charge for online content

The LA Times, my employer, will now be charging for online content, as its president announced Friday.

An idea that had to come, I think, as newspapers cannot continue to give away content that costs money to generate.

As the story notes, we have more readers than ever before — which is true of most newspapers, I suspect — but are losing money and cutting staff. I’m hoping this will begin reversing that trend.
