Then what's the point of Google Currents? I defeats the purpose of a 'Store'. They're gonna sell news now?

Theoretically the News section of the store would be for news sources that only offer subscriptions, like the New York Times, or Wall Street Journal. Free sources would still go through whatever you want: Currents, Flipboard, News360, etc.

Perhaps this is one reason behind the demise of reader. If you wanna sell news, drop the very popular free news source. Of course, like i said, just ONE of many reasons.

Google Reader isn't a "free news source", it's just a news aggregator. You could have had the New York Times or Wall Street Journal in your Reader, but you wouldn't be able to read much if you didn't pay for subscriptions.
