From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I do not support (taxation)/public assistance for the journalism sector in any form. They are just like any other business that must adapt and improve to survive. The fact that they haven't done so is not a reason to bail them out. Many, many businesses fail and people come back and reinvent their business or get creative and start a new business. This is a natural process in the business cycle. We need to let this happen and stop trying to rescue businesses that are not being managed properly at taxpayer expense.
