News Corp Australia will offer 28 days’ free access to the online editions of its metropolitan newspapers for people who take out a new subscription during the next fortnight. They will also be offered a 50 per cent discount for the following month. News Corp Australasia’s executive chairman Mich­ael Miller says this will allow people to stay connected and informed during the coronavirus pandemic. He adds that the federal government has deemed the news media to be an essential service during the crisis. However, Miller has conceded that the print editions of some community newspapers may need to be suspended.
