What's behind the OP article's advice to media is a temporary suspension that won't hurt their bottom line. You argue that the paywall status quo is fine, and any elimination of paywalls hurts corporate media.
Show me a non-corporate media link (say, Media Matters) that factually shows how eliminating paywalls would hurt corporate media for the next seven months, and you win.

EDIT: Nah. You don't win, cuz Stengel has been in that world a lot longer than you, has a greater command of data and issues.
