N.Y. Times online rumored to start charging for content

Readers may soon have to start paying to read the New York Times online, according to several sources.


While the Old Gray Lady made headlines in 2007 for putting all its content online, including archives, free to everyone, the company now has a change of heart, or so says New York Magazine's Intel blog.

The New York Times itself refused to comment to several journalists, causing them to speculate it's because they plan to jump aboard the Apple Tablet announcement Jan. 27.
