From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
If journalists (that's a laugh!) cannot compete successfully (cmmmercially), we don't need them. We don't, and shouldn't, support other outdated activities. Government support of journalists means that the political party in power controls the news. This idea is stupid...there are many ways to get news and the governement does not need to restrict or financially support so-called journalists. Let the free market dictate the outcome. If journalists are unable to support themselves, blame Al Gore...he invented the Internet. Thanks for your attention.
