I am not certain the reporter got Verizon's position right. Is Verizon really trying to limit their users to only sites that are willing to pay Verizon for the traffic? This sounds insane. If correct, Verizon is committing business suicide. They do not have that much of a monopoly yet and I cannot imagine web site owners paying them to let users have access. Steering users to sites is often paid for but preventing access is a another story.
