Indy Star Rushes to Irrelevance
Is it just me, or did anyone else notice that trying to view the Indianapolis Star online now requires a password? Go ahead- give it a whirl: http://www.indystar.com/
The management seems hell-bent on making sure nobody reads. If I can't look for free at the Indy Star, no problem, I'll look at other free sites for news. There are plenty of them. The Star doesn't generate enough original content to make it worth my while to subscribe, and besides, they treated my campaign poorly, so I won't subscribe on principle.
I can think of just one or two subscription news websites that make any money. The Star's management has to know this. Maybe they just want to fold at this point.
Enjoy your accelerated trip to oblivion, Indy Star!
Update: Followed up on Todd's comment and found the Star fully accessible once again.
