I strongly object to ANY proposal that allows our government to get involved in the media. Whether it be taxing, supporting or censoring, the media cannot be free of influence from the government with this type of involvement. ONLY A FREE PRESS CAN KEEP THE GOVERNMENT HONEST! Your proposals scare the hell out of me!!!! Leave the media alone. It's worked just fine for over 200 years in the country, it will figure out how to survive without your "help".
