Will be interesting to see if they wrap this into their existing search results - as it could have a significant impact on driving traffic to "pay only" services.
Slick marketing aside, "deep Web" is a not-so-deep idea. Though the search can target seven different publications, you can't access any results unless you subscribe to the site or service in question. Yahoo! believes that Search Subscriptions offers some convenience, eliminating the need to find information on individual sites. However, since many users probably have access to only a few of the restricted-content sites anyway, the time saved seems pretty minimal.
The content providers to offer one-off cheap purchases of that single news article.
Yahoo to offer agregated subscriptions to multiple news services when accessed via Yahoo.
Per Joseph Pulitzer:
Our Republic and its press will rise or fall together. An able, disinterested, public-spirited press, with trained intelligence to know the right and courage to do it, can preserve that public virtue without which popular government is a sham and a mockery. A cynical, mercenary, demagogic press will produce in time a people as base as itself. The power to mould the future of the Republic will be in the hands of the journalists of future generations.
