Greenville News Charges for Online Access to Archives

I have found it disturbing that you can no longer access archived articles on the Greenville News website.  The only way to access them now is to pay for them…$2.95 an article.

I guess the research they did a few months ago for the redesign also included finding ways to make money.  I cannot blame them for wanting to find ways to be profitable online.  The last thing I expected was to see them block the archives though.

I wonder what my readership would drop to here at The Conservativist if I only allowed access to my archives to paid subscribers.

Thankfully the Spartanburg Herald Journal still allows you to search archived articles for free.
