From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
FTC: I am against the bailing out of journalists, and definitely against training them in Americorp. The present administration would like to censor free speech, that is quite clear to many of us. Journalism will survive if free speech survives. The American taxpayer should not have to pay their salaries. If there is concern about newspapers failing, you need to look at the reasons. One could be the bias that turns many of us away. Another might be those mediocre people who just live their lives for pleasure, not caring about how the government is being run,(leaving room for the abuse of power that we see today)or what is happening in the world. You can't force people to take part in life. Journalists need to stick to the facts and search out the truth, even if it doesn't fit their views. The more you do this, the more people you turn away. JUST SAY NO TO BAIL OUTS!!
