From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The government needs to stay out of the private sector. If the news company,channel,paper,or radio stations are going bankrupt that means one or two things. The people running the business are incompetent,in which case they should be fired. In scenario no.2 the public is not interested in the news being broadcasted or printed. In either or any case the gov. has no business intruding into the private market and propping up failing news corporations with my tax dollars. If they are failing its because we don't want to read or listen to what they have to offer. I pay taxes to keep this country safe,everything else you can send back to me. Stop stealing my money. Stop the over taxation. Stop squandering my country's wealth. Stop lying to the country. Sincerely a tru patriot Richard Gale
