From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Other than for public radio and television, which should not be funded at any higher rate than today, not one penney of tax dollars should ever go to support any other forms of journalism. Money brings bias. The press should be totally free of government support of pressure. If the press is wanted in any particular format it will be supported by the public of the United States. No other support should ever be required nor requested. Freedom of the press means freedom from government control and that means freeedom from government support.
