If local newspapers charged for their news online, would you pay?

For a very cheap price? Say, a couple of cents/pence per news story?

Cheers

Update:

Actually, I shoud add: if all local news outlets charged for their news, thus leaving no free news, would you pay hte charge?

    I already pay for the Newspapers' online presence every time that I buy a print copy or subscribe to the South Bend Tribune (IN - SW Michigan edition) - -

    the answer I give is YES

    I'd pay if it was the only way to get local news.

    I pay for two newspapers, three magazines, cable tv, and the internet now.

    No. I like the fact that information is free and believe that it should stay that way (some papers online do charge and because of that, I don't bother with em)

    Absolutely not. I get all the news I want for free. Paying for it is out of the question.

    The reason News papers are going broke is because the internet takes up so much time while providing so much more.

    Nope.

    Plus the internet doesnt really have a micro payment system (which it should!)

    No way, why when you can get for free???
