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.
