Apple announced today a $9.99 all you can consume premium news subscription app. This even includes The Wall Street Journal, which is normally notable in itself as it’s normally a $38.99 subscription.
This sounds great and all, until reports started coming out that that WSJ isn’t sending all their articles to Apple.
WSJ internal memo says Apple News+ users will only get a "curated collection of general interest news." To access biz reporting, you'll still have to subscribe to the WSJ. Memo says "our collaboration with Apple will also extend to areas like video, voice, market data and AI."

This kind of makes you wonder what other companies are also limiting news access to Apple News+ customers.
EDIT: Looks like it might only effect content older than 3 days. It’s a somewhat decent deal, but if it limits you to only the past 3 days of content, that definitely hurts.
So how come all these "Subscription Required" tags? pic.twitter.com/tLaVTDL9H9
