From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It sounds to me as if your concern is NOT with how journalism will survive but with how the news agencies can re-pay their large debts. Journalism will survive just fine, whether it be by printed media, video newscasts or via the internet. I find that I am actually reading more now than ever before because of the internet. Please don't expect me to help bail out another industry by imposing more taxes or fees only to discover that journalism is no longer free. And by 'free' I do not mean monetarily.
