From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I do not believe the government should subsidize journalist in thier endevor to report the news. This biases journalists to print what the government wants us to hear and not unbiased news. As in any business, journalists need to change to meet the needs of thier customers. They may print thier reports on the internet as can anyone else. Subsidies work just like lobbiest, they work for the people who pay them to better thier own agendas. News reporting should be unbiases and not subsidized.
