From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
If you want to "re-invent" journalism, then teach them to be TRULY UNBIASED. To force taxpayers to support newspapers is unconstitutional and unconscionable. If newspapers and journalists--we have the recent example of what is considered "a fixture"--cannot operate in the free market, then let them fold. You are proposing to muzzle conservatives and give liberals a free hand and a hand-out. This is unacceptable in this society. Is there anyone left with integrity? I have been taxed almost to death and now you want to collect $35billion more from honest citizens like me to fund the enemies of our country? No way!
