It's the new business model for journalism. If you don't pay for news with a subscription, the only way they can survive is by relying on advertisers, and advertisers just want to see high click rates.

If you don't pay for news, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Lot of people are barely scraping by, so not many are willing to shell out for a subscription to tell them shit is indeed, fucked.

Remind me of the comic with the newsboy selling "How to avoid the alt right pipeline", for a $10 a month. When asked if there's anything they can read that doesn't require a subscription, he directs them to another newsboy giving away free copies of "How to join the alt right pipeline".
