KANSAS CITY, Mo.  — News — sometimes — comes at a price. On Dec. 5, the Kansas City Star will begin charging for its content. The announcement was made Sunday in an online article by Mi-AI Parrish, the Star’s president and publisher.

The article, in part, read: “I understand that being charged for something that you’ve gotten for free isn’t fun. But providing unlimited access across all platforms for a small amount makes good sense.”

According to the announcement, subscribers would have “unlimited” access to ‘, e-Star replica edition, mobile sites, digital back issues and archive databases”.
