From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Journalism should be treated like all other industries, organizations etc. If they can't make it they must change their ways of doing business or go out of business. If I as an individual must comply with the requirement, why would I expect the tax payers to bail me out, especially if I caused my problems by my own stupidity. A free country shouldn't mean a country supporting every kind of industry etc. Bankruptcy rules are available as needed in some cases.
