New York Times Paywall Doomed to Fail

The poll for today on The Globe and Mail. Fully 97% say they won't pay for news. 60% say never, ever. 37% say they'll go elsewhere (and I'm guessing wouldn't pay elsewhere either).

The entire news (and indeed media) industry is watching to see what happens with the NYT paywall. So far, it's not off to a great start. Solving the 'how to sell news' problem will be a lucrative one.
