Fake news don’t come cheap; The Onion has begun testing a paywall for its international readers. Under the current system, you get five free articles per month, after which it’s $US3/month or $US30/year for access.
But no worries, skimmers and culture snobs! The A.V. Club and homepage don’t count, and the system won’t be deployed in places where there are large numbers of US troops. All in all, sounds like a pretty reasonable plan, given that we’re talking about the consistently funniest site on the whole wide internet. [Splitsider]
