Hardly a day goes by without at least someone — and usually a number of someones — leaving indignant and sometimes snarky comments on News Record social media posts about how our stories published online should be free to read.

While other readers often respond to defend the bulk of the News Record’s content being behind a paywall, a few are persistent in their belief that, for some reason, our business can maintain under a different model than any other.

We should count ourselves lucky that we still have a local newspaper. The "free" news people get off social media is garbage. If we are to remain a free democratic country we had better support our local newspaper.
