It is not the governments job to step in and save the media. If it does then the media will no longer be the 4th branch as the saying goes it will be a wholey owned servant on 2 of the other three. it is an outrage for you to even be thinking of doing this. Let the media stand or fall like any other business. I'm sure that in this nation a new media source will step up to replace the old. If it has a bias as some thing the new online media and AM radio does then the people will see it and it will also go the way of the dinosaur. Again this is NOT the job of the govt to "REINVENT" the media. If it is then show me where in the Constitution is says it is. DONT DO THIS. STOP EVEN CONSIDERING IT. ITS NOT YOUR JOB!!!
