Viewers don't pay, advertisers pay for viewers hitrates. There's a whole industry built around this, sucking advertising revenue from traditional media, causing newspapers to shut down or be eviscerated, among other things. Nothing wrong with that per se (unless you consider it insidiously evil by definition, or are troubled by the downward quality pressure on journalism, or like newspapers), but in our case it is taking our volunteer good works and giving money to greedy people who add no value. I'm offended by that, just as I would be if I wrote a paper or book or song and someone stole it and published it as theirs.
