From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please do not create a journalism division called AmeriCorps -- this would force taxpayers to pay for training of journalists. Do not create a direct journalism bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist.” The government should not pay for the media. That organization should be an unbiased reporting group. If the taxpayers fund that group then they will feel obliged to report only what the government wants reported.
