News Corp. and The Wall Street Journal plan to introduce micro-payments for individual articles and premium subscriptions to WSJ.com this fall, according to The Financial Times, which calls the move “a milestone in the news industry’s race to find better online business models.”
True/Slant is a new site that launched in Alpha today, “an original content news network tailored to both the “New Journalist” and marketers who want a more effective way to engage with digital audiences. Contributors, consumers and marketers each have a voice on True/Slant.”
WSJ.com is set to relaunch on Tuesday, paidContent.org reports.
Kara Swisher, the prominent technology columnist for the Wall Street Journal who co-runs the WSJ’s All Things Digital site, says she’s giving up print for good and expects to only be writing online in the future.
