From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Air America failed because no one listened. It is not the governments job OR PLACE to fund or finance, in any way , news agencies that are losing readers/viewers and can no longer pay their bills. If those companies in question would put out a product people wanted they would be fine. Any involvement by any beauracratic entity should be challenged in court as unconstitutional and/or as a form of censorship. Just the fact that this is being considered is despicable and insidious. People should be FREE (remember freedom?) to choose what they hear and read. The companies that are giving the people the news they are asking for are doing great! STAY OUT OF IT!
