This is the first time I know a digital news site asks readers to subscribe before reading more articles in the US. It happens while I am reading only 1 article and a popup displays to ask me so saying that I have to subscribe because I have read up all free articles. I am confused.

There are plenty of news sources (in the US at least) that use a fee for service model. Some of them used to be free.

What? The authors of The Onion want to be paid so they can feed their families? The nerve!

I hope you are aware that the news articles aren't real, they are satire, entertainment. :smile: But they usually do have excellent commentary.
