Comments: Free Access to NYTimes.com, RIP

Doesn't WSJ charge for access to their content? Has that changed their influence?

Right, Jeff, but the parts of the Journal that are still free, principally OpinionJournal.com, are the ones that still actually get read and linked to. Putting specialized business articles of interest only to a limited (and typically wealthier) audience behind a wall for paid subscribers only makes sense; putting generalized opinion pieces back there doesn't. Not unless you've already discounted the extent of your influence anyway.
