friendships and to create new friendships. A free media is not an
optional extra. It’s really a good time that everybody

If you invest in newsrooms, you build up your newsroom, you get the best journalists in the world and you try and get more each
year so you can make the product richer and deeper, people will want to consume
it. Because they they fall in love with the product and it becomes part
of their lives, you can convince them to pay. People from all over the world
