Charging for News Content? Is Anything Free?

Today’s episode of CNN Student News includes a segment about the debate over whether or not newspapers and other news providers should charge people to read the news online. The reporter in the video takes an informal poll and finds (not surprisingly) that most people won’t pay for news content online.

The video segment raises a question that may be worth discussing with in the context of personal finance. The question is, “what will people pay for? And why?”

The video also has a short segment about NASA’s trip to perform maintenance on the Hubble Telescope. The video would go well with the interactive tour of telescope that I posted a link to early today.
