From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am against our Government taxing us to fund nonprofits for any reason. Newspapers will either succeed of fail based on market conditions and our Government has no business using tax dollars to fund any industry. Establisning a fund to support local news is rediculas, because the funders will dictate what the fundees say and how they say it. A tax on the internet spectrum for purposes of using tax dollars to support and control any industry or trade, inclucding journalism is government that has decided to try and control all aspects of our lives.
