So free access to Newsday content ends tomorrow, which stinks for non-subscribers and out-of-towners just looking for Isles news. But of course it's no surprise why they're trying something else (and I think they'll have to adjust their pay model on the fly). The U.S. newspaper industry as it exists now is sick and getting sicker. Despite repeated cuts, it's going to be hard to calibrate a local model that works. For sports fans, long live the beat writer. Or so you'd hope.
