From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
"As a result, some are questioning how journalism can survive and thrive in the future. The workshop will address proposals to better-support and lower the costs of journalism." Leave "journalism" alone! If it appeals to enough people, then like all free enterprise, it will survive. If it does not appeal to people, then let it die! Good journalism which gives the people the information they want will survive, bad journalism will only survive if "propped up" by the government. Let "journalism" live or die on it's own merit! The FCC should not be "supporting" journalism either liberal or conservative - good or bad. This is nothing more than an effort by some to "shut down" others. Shall we be like Venezuela?
