In the Sunday Business Post.
Colette Sexton reported:
Independent News and Media (INM) is considering the introduction of a paywall on its news sites.
The newspaper company, which publishes the Irish Independent, the Sunday Independent and the Sunday World, as well as a range of local newspapers, has given its content away for free on its websites up to this point.
…A new corporate strategy for INM completed by EY recommended that the newspaper group charge for some of its online content.
The EY project, entitled The One Programme, saw key executives and editors in the company interviewed. It was critical of current innovation and digital strategy within the group.

An article by Paul Wilson in yesterday’s Guardian with the headline, ‘Jürgen Klopp’s prediction comes to pass as Liverpool vanquish Villarreal’
The same article in yesterday’s Irish Times with the headline, ‘Jurgen Klopp, players and fans make it happen at Anfield’, and attributed to the Guardian Service
Why would I pay for an Irish Times service when I can read the same article for free with the Guardian online service?
It was the same last week with the Tiger Woods article, same story but different headline.
This is really annoying when I’m sitting in work bored, looking for something to read to kill the monotony of being a slave to a corporate conglomerate…
The already hated Irish Times paywall kicks in.
Thanks Bewildered Student
Samantha McCaughren writing in yesterday’s Sunday Times revealed the Irish Times will reintroduce a paywall later this year.
Good luck with that.
