It is possible, just maybe, that newspapers can package content in such a way as to charge for it online. So says Mark Potts in his Recovering Journalist blog, with a degree of skepticism throughout.
Potts notes that people want packaging, that newsrooms or individuals (like Romenesko, for instance) can curate content in such a way as to make it valuable to collect and consume.
Potts believes it's that packaging that holds the key to any approach newspapers make in moving to a premium-pay model online.
"Maybe, rather than paying for news, per se, people will be willing to pay for smart packages of it," he writes.
