The Daily Beast Mulls Paywall

As Newsweek/The Daily Beast approaches the end of the Newsweek era, there are going to be a lot of changes to the brand. In going all digital, staffers will move on and, according to Bloomberg News, there might be a paywall erected.

A Daily Beast spokesperson said that the site is considering launching a metered paywall, much like the New York Times does now. So visitors to The Daily Beast would be able to read a certain amount of articles for free per month, and then, once that number is exceeded, be asked to pay to read more.

And just like the with the Times, good people will pay, and bad people will Google the link to the article and read it for free.
