#WEFHamburg: WaPo mulling its own paywall plus all the news from the World Editors Forum

October 8th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted by in About us, Events

Yesterday at the World Editors Forum in Hamburg, Raju Narisetti, managing editor of the Washington Post, told that the Post was not ruling out its own paid-content model.

The quality of the content we produce needs to be well funded, and one of the ways could be to make users pay for it, not all of it. I am not a big believer of putting everything behind a paywall. I am a big believer in saying we should monetise.

More power to the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal in figuring out and if they do we would be happy to look at that. We may find our own way.
