From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Journalism will survive by morphing with the rest of world. I don't think anything should be propped up that cannot change with the times. If subsidizing failing jobs was the norm at the turn of the century we would still be paying for people to shovel manure. Of course if we tax news on the internet and blogs to pay for traditional venue journalists then I guess we are doing just that.
