From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I think that the creation of a journalism division of AmeriCorp is a bad idea. Government should not be in the business of influencing the reporting of news and this would establish a system rife with politicizaton and corruption of our news source. I am also against the bailout of news organizations. If the news that they are reporting is not appreciated and supported by the public, then they should not be in business and my tax dollars should not be used to prop them up.
