Oh, 2013. In some ways, you seem almost comfortingly familiar. One of my New Year’s resolutions was to stop confusing the members of One Direction with the members of The Wanted.

Some of them you have to pay for, and some you don’t really have to pay for. Murdoch, we thought you wanted us to pay for everything! What gives?
PaidContent points out that while two of News Corp’s Murdoch-owned papers in England, The Times and News Of The World, do have a paywall, while the nation’s highest-circulation paper, The Sun, also owned by News Corp, is available for nada. A spokesperson from the paper said there was no plan as of yet to begin charging, though she did mention that The Sun‘s website does have “paid-for extensions” and that all the papers have different pay models.
In 2009, Murdoch said he planned to charge for all of his sites. Right now, it’s a mixed bag.
