"Supporting and lowering the cost of journalism" is NOT a legitimate role for government - not federal government nor any of its agencies or bureaus, not state government nor county nor municipal government. These "inquiries" and efforts are an abuse of governmental authority, and ANY government body attempting to trespass into these areas should be immediately defunded and abolished by Congressional legislation, and their legitimate responsibilities assigned to some other agency or bureau.
