Papers go up because as marginal readers flock online they seek to extract more money from the most avid readers who prefer paper print

I wonder how profitable Mail Online is? Apparently it's the world's most popular English-language newspaper site, even for Americans hence I guess why there are so many stories about US celebs that are unknown in the UK on the website.

i've stopped buying it, and now tend to use the android app.

I have noticed, as you say that UK Showbiz is actually full of US Showbiz

Are they stories about young female US celebs that are "all grown up"?

Yeah but we don't know in what context people are looking website, a lot of people I know browse it for either sport or because of how bad the main news they run is / hilariously backward opinion pieces, google 'sidebar of shame'

Maybe it will be too expensive for people to buy particularly hot female, immigrant house owners on benefits

If you're still buying the Daily Mail, you deserve to be charged at least sixty pence.

Ugh! I really do wonder who that site is aimed at sometimes.

The DM is a vile publication so hopefully the price rise will see that circulation fall.

Not surprised at that. I think many more will follow. That will be the demise of printed newspapers, people may prefer them but as the cost of printing and distributing them rises, they have to raise prices and when times are tight people will just stop buying them, the lower their circulation is the less likely advertisers will advertise in them.

It is a vicious circle, but sooner or later and I think it may be sooner for many newspapers it will not be cost effective to continue printing them.

Some provincial newspapers, particularly, have seen their circulation half in the last 20 years and many saw an 8% to 11% drop in circulation last year alone.
