Mark Cuban: Kill News Aggregators, End Free Links

Please see my other comment below. I would agree with you. However, most of the time us old-timers at HP just click the "comment" section to get HP's summary post - akin to getting a news bite from USA Today! In that case, the site is never visited and therefore no site visit and any subsequent clicks.

Personally, I don't click on ads (don't even pay attention to them for that matter) and therefore worry that others are probably doing the same thing - resulting in less and less money for beat reporters and other journalists to share.

Revenue model aside, the real work of a journalist needs to be properly compensated. Any sharing model that accomplishes that can prove Mr. Cuban wrong.
