From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
This is an underhanded and dispicable way to conduct the peoples business. Why would any one want to subsidize the salaries of a journalist just so they can write the "party line". Why would any reputable agency want to discourage the public debate (free speech) unless the had something to hide or they could not compete in the arena of ideas? This is just a stupid idea.
