As previously reported, the SF Chronicle has launched a plan to put some of its content behind a paywall. Appeal readers have many thoughts about this! Not just in the comments, but by way of our daily poll, which yesterday asked “Will You Pay $12/Month To Read The SF Chronicle Online?”
As you can see from the chart, the response “AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA no” won by a landslide, with 71.61% of the vote. And there were many “other” responses! Here are a few:
They still produce the Sunday paper in physical form?
Sadly, regrettably, I won’t pay it. [SF Examiner editor/writer, 1980-2000]
No, but I do feel sufficiently guilty about that fact.
Once SFChronicle has $12 worth of stories on it, maybe?
Won’t pay $ if Willie Brown gets a paycheck from my subscription
I already pay for ‘weekends’ which infuriatingly includes Fridays
For the chance to cost them $28 for the Sunday paper, maybe!!
We know one subscriber, of course — our own Rita Hao, who will be reporting her take on the new SFChronicle.com all this week.
Here’s her first installment: My First Day With The New Online Chron.
