The Debate Over Online News: It's the Consumer, Stupid

The problem is generating a revenue stream. Newspapers don't sell content they sell the paper on which the content is printed. Radio and television don't sell content they sell air time to advertisers. This is where their revenue streams come from. The only people getting a revenue stream from the internet are internet service providers. The only way content providers get a revenue stream is by selling advertising space on their sites. Their only other alternative is begging. The MSM fight for maintenance of the present system because it is the only way they know to generate a revenue stream. They may not be wrong in thinking that.
