paying for content and blogs to replace online newspapers?

Another interesting article today on OJR discussing that recent occurence that every major newspaper site in Britain has bolstered their sagging income by charging for content. There are two points that could be concluded from this;1: that Blogs will become an more sort after source of news as the so-called mainstream press locks itself away from the casual viewer, and 2: it is highly likely that one day soon we will see the Uber-bloggers charge for content? Someone like Salam Pax, the Blogger of Baghdad might be able to make some good money. Certainly here in Australia has a large paying audience based on exclusive political email content, and the Sydney Morning Herald charges for access to their online archives. There is no reason why others, in a more traditional blog format could achieve similar success or income.
