From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Let the market work. Anything FTC does that changes the natural market will only hurt journalism. It is very important to allow ineffective methods and technologies be replaced by those that are more effective. Like any other industry, if you want to stay in business you must update. Subsidizing antiquated technology is a sure way to kill any company in the long term. Subsidizing is different than pretending. Reality will come anyway, just as it did with the manufacturing sector that did not update their systems.
