I am willing to wager 300 yen that the CNN fee for
accessing entire texts of news stories beginning
August 1 will be 300 yen per month and not per

official content providers (and CNN is on drugs).
The venerable New York Times adds to the confusion
with a wishy-washy mention of CNN's pricing plans at
