From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
There is a reason that journalists cannot be successful in a free society. 1) They need to write better articles; or 2) they need to develop a better business plan; or 3) there are too many journalists.

America would not have survived this long if the solution to a changing industry was to "pay" to keep it the same.
