The walls of Jericho

Reuters has put up a paywall on its website. After a free preview period, readers will have to pay $34.99 a month to access its news - a stiff price for pensioners. 


Even the London Stock Exchange, with all its money, is complaining.


Perhaps the Reuter Society can negotiate a free subscription for its members and recruit new members at the same time. Society membership costs only £10 a year. Will the Reuter Society blow its trumpet for pensioners and send the paywall tumbling down like the walls of Jericho? ■
