While I am all for freedom of speech I do not believe that it is mine or governments responsibility to aid and finance "news" organizations that cannot stay in business own their own. If they are not able to make a profit in the market they have chosen then let them fail. If our society and culture is moving toward other forms of media and how they gather information then those who are in that business needs to make the changes to stay in that business without tax payer assistance. It is not the governments job to reward or penalize organizations based on whether they agree or disagree with the content, format or opinion.
