From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
What you people are trying to do regarding 'the future of journalism' is just about criminal. A State takeover of the media, essentially forcing the taxpayer to pay for a Pravda-esque system, is completely unethical if not downright illegal, and will be opposed by an extremely large number of Americans. Rather than uniting America, you are further dividing us. AmeriCorps has no place in media, and the taxpayer has no place in funding something which will be used to promote one point of view. Journalism will survive just fine via INDIVIDUAL INITIATIVE, which, I suppose, is something that this Administration doesn't believe in. Collectivism appears to be more to its liking.
