From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
This form of media, should be "laid to rest". They do not report the news as it is happening nor do they report impartially. No one reads their insignificant papers, because they do not report. This model has failed and should not be resurrected. I find it appalling that "AMERICORPS" would even be offered as an alternative. I am totally opposed to the FTC getting involved, sloughing the responsibility to a biased panel, and bailing out these newspapers. Taxing internet websites is unjust. Get out of this now. People do not want to read propaganda, and this is what the media spews today.
