From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Let market forces work and keep government OUT of the news business. Those entities that provide a service that is desired will survive while those that don't will not. Trying to stop progress artifically by interfering with market forces will fail. Can you see that having the government try to sustain something that has no drawing power will fail? Should we have tried to keep the stage coaches running with the advent of the trains? How about the covered wagons? Why didn't we subsidize the tall ships when steam power began? Additionally, our present debt is killing our children's future. Stop throwing money at every supposed problem!
