Reason for optimism

Newspaper Web sites attract 70.3 million unique visitors in June, representing about 36% of all Internet users, according to a new Nielsen Online study commissioned by an American Association of Newspapers.

I wonder whether there isn't still a kind of audience vanity that continues in newspapers today?

These high volume audience figures look nice but the audience doesn't pay at all and the advertisers don't pay enough.

We know that charging will reduce the size of audience but surely a smaller fee paying audience is more sensible and viable than a large free one.

Time to bite the bullet and get on with charging?
