From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It's hard for me to believe that, with all the truly serious issues confronting the US, the federal govt. still finds the time and money to pursue the subject of the media. Based on the information I have, it appears the FCC is seriously considering a possible "bail-out" of major media outlets that are on the ropes. If that is the case, let me clearly say that the last thing I think my tax dollars should be funding is such a program!! After all, every media source has operated in the same free-market system (at least up until now!!), and if people are not voting with their pocketbook to keep them in business, then maybe they need to change their type of reporting!!! The bottom line: Let the free market decide and let the chips fall where they may!
