From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
While good intentions may be behind this workshop, it sounds like the considerations move us in a direction we don't need to go in this country. Journalism will survive in this country, but only if free speech survives. Bail-outs, government-sponsored education of journalists, and the resulting taxes on the citizenry cannot be in the best interest of news outlets or consumers.
