The Financial Times is praised as paywall pioneer in New York Times article

The Financial Times is praised as a pioneer for introducing paywalls long before Rupert Murdoch, in a New York Times article headlined The Paper That Doesn't Want to Be Free.
The article says: "The growth of paid online services under the Financial Times banner shows that the paper was right to maintain pay walls at a time when other media companies were yielding to the Silicon Valley mantra that “information wants to be free,” said Tim Luckhurst, a journalism professor at the University of Kent in Britain and a former editor of The Scotsman.
“It has proved, in one niche at least, that editorial journalistic endeavor does create value,” he said."
