From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The press' role is to be a watchdog and keep the public informed as to what the Government is up to.How could this possibly be maintained with the Government training journalists and bailing out their income/industry? This is blatantly a conflict of interest and if we do not maintain any seperation of the press and the Government then surley our liberties will be diminished.This MUST not happen!I also ponder the constitutionality of using tax dollars to pay journalists salaries.What's next broadcast t.v. bailouts? Please,please do not let this happen to our beloved country.
