Paywalls: the useless temptation. The strange world we live in.

 It's time to revive a 60's hit for that occasion. "Master Jack" by Four Jacks & and a Jill. It has surprisingly prophetic lyrics that make it so nice and worthwhile to listen to, ever since Murdoch is the proponent of that costly feature.
"Master Jack", a cheerful protest song, has reallz great lyrics, for instance;

You took a colored ribbon from out of the sky
And taught me how to use it as the years went by
To tie up all your problems and make them look neat
And then to sell them to the people in the street

"It's a strange, strange world we live in, Master Jack ..."

It is estimated that about 90% of the consumers are not paying for online news. That's very interesting and good news. Murdoch for instance is known for his war mongering, he and News Corp were actively involved to bring that war about.

People may actually be much better off without the "information" and
opinions from that corporation. Murdoch turned out to be a false economic
protest with his prognosis how the Iraq war would be beneficial:

"The greatest thing to come out of this for the world economy, if you
could put it that way, would be $20 a barrel for oil. That's bigger than
any tax cut in any country."
"Murdoch praises Blair for his courage ..."
