From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Having the government subsidize journalism with taxes would naturally allow the government to decide whether or right wing or left wing opinions would be allowed to be aired. Currently, we have a very liberal government that the majority of the country simply does not support. The current administration would be more than willing to halt news media like Fox or other conservative TV or radio from airing. Government subsidy is a very dangerous idea that needs to stop right here and now. NO GOVERNMENT INVOLVEMENT IN JOURNALISM. NO TAXES ON OUR CELL PHONES OR ANYWHERE ELSE FOR THIS PURPOSE.
