WSJ, Free or Paid: A Final Word
BusinessWeek's Catherine Holahan does a nice job rounding up the various arguments about whether WSJ.com should go free (quotes me, too. I think she called because I had put some specific numbers down, in addition to discussing strategy, as others did). Only other thing I remember saying (on a cellphone between appointments) was that I think the Journal will always have some paid component. For example, when Holahan in the discussion said that thestreet.com is free, I pointed out that not all of it is. Is there any written daily business outlet that is completely free, with no "upsells"?
