I do not use online media outlets or products that cost money. I read articles that are free to read.
I have nothing against sources that must be paid, or material that must be paid for. There are always costs and means of managing costs. There are individuals and groups who are prepared to pay for media products. I have, however, no need to pay for the articles I need or prefer to read.
I am prepared to pay for resources that enable me to teach or research. I prefer to gain teaching tools or research material for free. However, I understand and accept that there are costs incurred in the production of educational or academic resources, and that I must pay to consume such products.
