Andrew Sullivan Stunned People Won’t Pay to Read Him

This was a well thought out plan, huh, Andy?

Andrew Sullivan and his experiment in ad-free, completely subscriber based content got off to a great start, but things have since fizzled. In a post, Sullivan wrote that while traffic to The Dish was strong with one million visitors last month, it was time to tighten his metered paywall. From now on, visitors will be allowed only 5 free “read-on” stories (longer features) per 60 days, instead of the previous seven free stories per 30 days.

Sounds like “fuck you, pay me.” We blame the Obama Sequester.

    Isn’t Sullivan the one who had a massive fundraising effort on his blog to keep the lights on and then went on a month-long vacation to the Caribbean six months later?
