USA Today: Yer pays yer money (and yer takes yer chances)

Usa

USA Today announced that it will launch a new paid electronic service for $10 a month. I’m not sure how much different (other than price) this one will be from the existing $13.95 Electronic Edition.

Does this mean, however, that USA Today will cut back on its web site content to bolster e-edition sales? You would think that they have to, else why pay for something that you can get for free.

I’m thinking that is attempt is going to draw a lot of attention from follow-the-leader newspaper sites around the country. Remember what weather maps (and newspapers) looked like before USA Today came along?
