  • Anybody notice that the online Tacoma News Tribune is now charging a fee? $99 per year. Yikes! I think Eric Williams is okay as a journalist, but not at that price. Too rich for me. :(

  • The Seahawks, M's, and Huskies blogs were supposed to continue to be free, because those areas pay for themselves in advertising. It is everywhere else that doesn't.

  • Newspapers are doing this to find another revenue stream since the newspapers are dieing out and quickly.

    They started that over here years ago but not that much.

    Most major papers can still be accessed for free cause there is a good revenue stream for the videos they force you to watch to get the news.

    Do you take the paper? Over here if you get home delivery there is no charge to access the site.

  • I am accessing the entire site daily for free still. Not sure why they are forcing you to pay. Just clicked on it just now.
