Print media starts on its death throes

And they wonder why the print media are dying out…

And from the print-publisher-in-utter-denial file comes news that the Newport, RI Daily News is changing its pricing structure to punish people who want to read their news only online.

The Daily News will now charge $145 annually to a newspaper subscriber, $245 if a subscriber wants the paper and access to the paper’s Web site—and, if you can believe it, $345 if the subscriber only wants the Web site.

Yep, The Daily News is charging subscribers more than twice for its content online than for its printed edition.
