Staunton News Leader now charging for online access

The Staunton News Leader has begun charging for online access, following others across the country who are requiring subscriptions to read their news articles. Fees begin at $8.00 a month and go up depending on the service.

I cannot help but wonder if this is going to drive down readership for many small newspapers across the country. When the Waynesboro News Virginian began charging in May, I had some thoughts about this issue.

I subscribe to the News Virginian ... now the decision is whether to subscribe to the News Leader.
