Stop giving away your product for free.
Everyone likes catching up on the news, at some point the "free" model will have to go away in favor of paid content.
Take away all free news outlets and then a pay site might have a chance in making it.
Unfortunately, I think that is highly, highly unlikely.
I used to read the paper every day... most days two. I can't even remember when the last time I got a paper was. Everything I need is available online. Weather, TV, local news stories, etc.
Of course, if Calvin & Hobbes came back, and was only available via a real newspaper, I'd gladly pay the $1 a day or whatever to read the strip.
