Meet the Elite Vanguard Attacking Free Content
After half a year of bragging about all his customers, would-be newspaper paywall king Steven Brill has finally named some of them. Prepare to follow The Intelligencer Journal-Lancaster New Era right into the future.
That's just one of the newspapers that has signed on with Brill's Journalism Online for software to sell content online. The others, says the New York Times, "include The Fayetteville Observer in North Carolina and Global Post, an Internet site based in Boston." So the next time someone tells Brill that nobody wants to buy paywalls from him, he can correct them: "That's nobodies to you, pal."
