Google News: subscription vs. registration labels

Sure, it’s a beta service, but Google, how about getting something basic straight:

Most of the sites that you label as “subscription required” do not in fact require a paid subscription. Rather, they simply require registration.

That’s a significant difference, especially when you’re an aggregator putting 4000 sources in front of a user.

Stop doing free news sites that require registration an injustice; get the labels right.
