A few hours ago, the Arizona Republic unveiled the gimme money version of its website, azcentral.com.
If you don't subscribe to the paper version of the Republic, you'll have to pony up $10 a month if you want to read a "significant number" of articles on its website.
The Republic made its last-minute plea yesterday for people to subscribe, although based on a look at the opinions of several of the usual commenters -- several of whom we've already seen here at New Times -- a lot of folks aren't going for it.
When we polled our readers almost a month ago, almost five percent said they would drop the extra cash to read what's on azcentral.com. Twenty-two percent said no, they would not, and more than 73 percent said hell no, they would not.
So, who paid up and who didn't?
