Another Google News user took the words right out of my mouth ... I couldn't have said it better.
"I know that there are some commercial news sites that Google indexes who feel that people should not be able to read their content for free. I would like to be able to configure my preferences so that I don't have to see their "teaser" blurbs. I prefer to go from Google directly to the information I'm looking for, and I am never looking for a teaser blurb or a registration only site."
Of course they don't want to pay .. Why would they ... you can get HDTV free over the air in large metropolitan areas with an antenna ... and the internet certainly is just a broader range antenna .. We certainly already do pay for that ... Plus consumers already pay for TV by the inclusion of commercials in the programming ... Why we they pay twice?
