Paywalls in times of Crisis

It's interesting that the media(newspapers / websites) often use the community service card to justify reporting sensitive issues, and sometimes the public good card to defend occasionally crossing the line whatever that line might be!

Yet in these critical times, they post click bait Coronavirus headlines and place the content behind a paywall, just saying! ;)

Please think of this the next time they ask for your respect!

With that behaviour the only thing they are globally good for is the home delivery of depression era poo tickets!

Well said, Spotted One. I was thinking exactly the same thing yesterday. Poor form from the papers.

Not sure I understand, HS has all CV articles open to all (not behind the paywall)

They were certainly blocked late last night, I'm not sure what is happening in this regard today.
