I know it's easy for analysts to sit on the sidelines and point fingers ... so I'll go ahead and do that...

People don't pay because the content is generic and even low quality. I have paid $00s to Monocle and (on a different level) to Wikipedia, because their content has been useful/unique/entertaining. I paid to download Downton Abbey from iTunes, right after seeing it for free; because of the goodwill I feel towards anyone who bothers to create anything decent. I used to pay $00s to Stratfor when I cared about world news.

If someone put together good, analytical writers (not the bintellectuals who are marketed as good by the various newspapers) I would pay, especially if I could subscribe via Paypal and forget about it.
