Should online news sites charge

Absolutely!  Online news sites should charge a monthly fee for a set number of articles.  Just like cable TV and print newspapers, online news should create a subscription for its readers.  Newspapers that also have a digital copy of the paper online should not charge a fee.  They can charge a fee, but it should either be for the online paper or the print paper, not both.  In fact in probably five years or so, I think all online news sites should charge a fee.  With such a technology driven generation, we are bound to transfer print to the web.  Although ads make the corporations a great deal of money, it is not enough to money to support the company as a whole.  The ads generate money, but not enough to allow the online sites to grow and become the leader in the public’s news consumption.
