I understand why so many online publications are putting their content behind a paywall. However, who is going to pay for 10+ subscriptions a month? I’m worried it will make people even more biased if they only get news from one source.

I think they need to find another way to make money. The average viewer isn’t willing to pay, but they’ll go to fox and breitbart because their stories are still free and will never be behind a paywall


There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the decision of whether or not to put content behind a paywall ultimately depends on the specific publication and its target audience. However, as online publications continue to compete with one another for readers' attention, it is becoming increasingly common for them to put their content behind a paywall in order to generate revenue.

Whether or not this strategy will be successful depends on a number of factors, including the price of the subscription and the quality and variety of the content offered. However, for publications that are able to attract a loyal following, putting content behind a paywall can be an effective way to earn revenue and keep readers engaged.

Some people may be willing and able to pay for 10+ subscriptions a month, while others may not be able to afford that many. There are also a number of free, ad-supported options available. Ultimately, it comes down to what the individual is most comfortable with.

This concerns me too. People have less and less money to spend; not too many people will prioritize spending it on news. Yet the least trustworthy sites continue to offer their content for free.

How do I subtly tell someone that he knows my Dad? I am on the final round of interview with this company I really like and meeting the owner next. My Dad mentioned that they worked together and they regularly go on holidays together. Now, I would hope the owner recognises me, but I know my Dad never mentioned his kids to him cos my Dad is an a**hole. So in case I don’t get recognised, how can I subtly bring it up?

Tell me your craziest experience working with a TV network. Here comes mine:

I'm American, but my family is mostly Colombian. I was told my aunt and cousins would come here for 2 weeks. I discovered they were going to be paid to appear in a famous Hispanic TV show, where a "judge" receives a case, hears the plaintiffs and defendants and renders a verdict. But of course, it's all fake and payed 😂 turns out she wanted me to go there (even though I don't work for that TV network) so she's sure she'll be paid at the end of the show. Wth did I just do.

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?


So are we still on track to end our reliance on fossil fuels, or what? I'm not seeing nearly as many electric cars or charging stations as it seems like we are going to need soon
