Notecard: On disinformation and paywalls

“The greatest threat to democracy as it relates to the media is not the spread of disinformation, but the spread of paywalls. The information that an informed citizenry needs to make choices about who governs them and what is happening underneath the surface has been privatized, gated, and kept from those with an inability to pay.”

- a quote written by an editor about his antipathy for the paywall model, cited as a footnote in "The New, New Reading Environment" via N+1
