From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Under no circumstances should the media be in any way supported by government funds. It is the first step to PRAVDA-like news to the masses. As it now stands, the Media is too liberal as a whole and, while I support their right to their opinion I do not want my tax money supporting them because it gives the politicians too much control over the news content and can lead to a dictatorship. This is especially true with the current administration. Do not subsidize the media. They ARE NOT TOO BIG to fail. Let them fail if they cannot get their act togeether.
