    Tons of porn is readily available online for free. Yet there are still lots of sites making money charging for it (I think).

    How come that doesn't work with news?

    Because we don't have nekked women in our paper.

    When David Duchovney or Wade Boggs seeks treatment from reading too much news online, maybe then newspapers can start charging for content.

    England does the topless women on the inside of the paper, right? One of the Cape Town papers did as well - new girl every day! That paper also made the New York Post look like the New York Times, circa 1955.

    We do at ours somewhat, it's just a strip club ad. Causing quite a ruckus.

    A former shop always had strip club ads in sports, but we had to make sure they didn't run on a page that had any high school copy. Since preps were the vast, vast majority of our local coverage, it made things quite fun for whoever was doing layout.

    The Times tried that. Turned out Kristol, Friedman and Dowd were to pay content what two-girls-one-cup were to online porn.
