Do you read the artvoice? Use a free checking account? Craigslist? Google?
Thousands of successful businesses offer a service to draw a large population toward ads and other services. The fact is that the buffalo news has been writing itself out of relevancy for years. Now it can't support itself with ad revenue and it's taking the chance that they can get more readers to pay for content that's largely available in a number of other places for free than they will chase away by doing something that a minority of other news sites do.
