From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Tax consumer electronics if you would like to, but a journalism bailout is ridiculous and uncalled for. I do not want to "help pay the salary of every journalist" - We each pay the salary of journalists every day according to which periodicals we chose to buy. Our country does not need for AmeriCorps to have a journalism division either. We do not need the government training our journalists on what to say. And we certainly do not need the government imposing punitive taxes on those journalists who say things other than what AmeriCorps might train them to say!
