Beltway Bandits: National Journal creates private 'pay-to-play' web site for Hill. The cost for access to Congress a mere $295,0000.

Since news doesn't sell well and opinions are more numerous that crooked politicians, what's a publisher to do?

Providing a private, limited-access only platform for lawmakers and lobbyists ... National Journal is creating a private web site for Members of Congress and their staff. Taxpayers are not invited. Lobbyists and others seeking to influence Congress will be able to buy their way onto the site via advocacy advertising

It brings new meaning to the term "media whores."
