Murdoch’s UK Paywall a Miserable Failure

David Gerard writes “As part of his war against free, Rupert Murdoch put the Times and Sunday Times of London behind a paywall. Michael Wolff of Newser asks how that’s working out for him. You can guess: miserable failure: ‘Not only is nobody subscribing to the website, but subscribers to the paper itself — who have free access to the site — are not going beyond the registration page. It’s an empty world.’ Not that this wasn’t entirely predictable.”
