From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
??-proposals to better-support and lower the costs of journalism-?? It is not the job of government to provide the news! Any attempt by the government to subsidize the old new media or any new media jeopardizes the free press. This will lead to government control of the press. It will also require taxing of the general population to subsidize the media. If any media cannot sustain itself it is not the concern of the government. This is a free market and old media that cannot support itself should be allowed to die. This is nothing more than an attempt to the liberal Obama government to prompt up a dying liberal press that no one wants to listen!! This is like the Cuban or any other 3rd world government that wants their own puppet press to preach what the government wants them to preach. Freedom of the press is guaranteed in the constitution not the freedom to there be a press. The internet is a better and much faster method to get good news. Stay out of the press!!!!!!!
