From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
This is not an attempt to rescue journalism from disaster, it is an attempt to support partisan journalists that are favorable to this administrations interest. It is a partisan power play intended to choke out free speech. If certain media outlets are failings it is because the citizenry do not trust them, a result of their own choice in the direction of their organization. It is not the responsibility of a *forthright* government to prop up the failing media. This government's attempt to do so is tell-tale that it wishes to subvert and manipulate the truth in order to accomplish its agenda without the knowledge of the citizenry.
