14:44 EDTNWSA, NYT, PSO, WPOWashington Post to join peers with paywall, though fee undecided
The Washington Post (WPO) announced in an email that it will introduce a "paywall" this summer, meaning it will start charging some frequent users of its Web site. The publication will ask those who look at more than 20 articles or multimedia features a month to pay a fee, although the company has not yet decided how much it will charge, it stated. The paper added that its home-delivery subscribers will continue to have free access to all of The Postís digital products and that students, teachers, school administrators, government employees and military personnel will have unlimited access while in their schools and workplaces. The step, which The Washington Post called "modest compared with some other publications," is one the company said it has previously shied away from for fear of driving away readers and online advertisers. The Post noted that other daily publications that charge for content include the Wall Street Journal, which is owned by News Corporation (NWSA), Pearson's (PSO) Financial Times, and the Boston Globe and the New York Times, which are both owned by The New York Times Company (NYT). In afternoon trading, Washington Post shares slipped $2.67, or 0.6%, to $442.03.
