Only 35 Subscribers to Newsday's Website

Forgot to post this yesterday. John Koblin at the New York Observer reports that three months after Newsday turned it's website into a pay site, just 35 people subscribed.

The Dolans bought Newsday for $650 million back in October and decided to make its website only available to paid subscribers.

The website redesign and relaunch cost the Dolans $4 million and with those 35 people, they've grossed about $9,000.

The 35 does not include Newsday and Optimum Cable subscribers who have free access to the website.

...Steve Zipay is so pissed.

...h/t to reader James for the link.
