I fail to see why the government is intent upon hanging on to an archaic methodology in the communication industry. Over time there have been thousands and millions of industries/jobs that have transformed and this is just one of them that needs to follow. We need to let the market decide on how this industry transforms itself. Why do you want to perpetuate the old when in today's market it is turning to something else? Get with the times and if it means the elimination of journalists, let them go and transform into what the public wants. This is truly insane!!
