I AM SICK TO DEATH OF CLICKING ON A "NEWS" ITEM, AND YOUR SCREEN TELLING ME I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT, OR TURN OFF MY AD BLOCKER. BAD BUSINESS!
IF You are going to CHARGE me a fee for reading a news item you offer me, or force me to change my internet preferences, you should set up a 'WARNING, THE FOLLOWING DOES NOT REPRESENT A FREE PRESS! PAY OR LEAVE" BEFORE I start to read the story. Your system is reprehensible. Disgusting. UnAmerican. I'm going to start checking out other email providers. You're not the only game in town,guys.

Self-explanatory. Don't publish any articles that I have to subscribe to in order to read it! I couldn't get out of the article unless I subscribed first, and a year later Mercury paper is still sending me stuff to my email--I don't need a paper from San Francisco! I'm from Michigan!!
Get rid of those sponsored news sites. They are scammers. It's not news.
