How mobile devices can absolve journalism of its original sin: giving away online content

A good grasp about the future of new media, in particular in term of revenue model in the ecosystem of emerging platforms. It becomes more clear that the free rider mode of online news will disappear.

The key questions for news industryare whether or not news consuming public is willing to pay and how to monetize mobile content in ways based on the “failure” of online news model. 

On the other hand, is that really an original sin for new media to giving away online content for a news-reading public? 

I wonder if there are other ways to break thorugh the hardship of news media, rather than explicitly claiming that news is ALSO business. What is the news?
