From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Freedom of speech as guaranteed by the constitution does not include government sponsorship of "ANY" news organization. If "any" organization cannot support itself with its subscribers it should disappear without fanfare. Freedom means free. Taxing news organizations is like taxing Freedom, especially when resources WILL be used to promote left wing liberal garbage like NPR and any other government controlled entity. Journalism will survive, perhaps not the dead ended America destroying left wing journalism, but truthful, thoughtful media will thrive without misguided attempts to disrupt it.
