I appreciate the Chronicle allowing viewing of their content without some arbitrary fee. The Houston Business Journal doesn’t possess the same largesse, apparently. I wish Swamplot would discontinue links to their pay to view site. The HBJ gets revenue from advertising on their content page, like the Chronicle, so it’s perplexing as to why they wouldn’t have the same policy regarding the viewing of content as the Chronicle. Makes me really appreciate The Chronicle.
