Wall Street Journal Online Still Charges

I’m confused, why does the Wall Street Journal charge for an online subscription? And who is paying this? Even CNN attempted to do this online for awhile and realized that it was futile. The Washington Post, Boston Globe, and New York Times all provide their content free to users online. With the plethora of research and tools on the web, the goal should be to building a following and drive traffic to your site. From there, sell ad space, provide white papers, or web seminars to generate revenue. I have the Wall Street Journal delivered to my door and read it on the ride into work. There are many articles that I write about and would enjoy being able to link to them from this blog, but due to the subscription policy of the Wall Street Journal, only online subscribers would see them.

Am I missing something?
