From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
When the newspaper barons suck up to those in power, and those in power are such idiots that they allow our great nation to become bankrupt either through intention or because of stupidity, then those newspapers need to go down with no help from us. We must not prop up the newpaper industry such that the free flow of information is stiffled on the internet. If those bastards want to compete with the internet, then they must learn how to give us the information that is the G__ Damned truth, and if they are incapable of determining the truth, then they need to hire reporters that have a clue what the truth is. If the newspaper industry chooses to be partisian to one side or the other, and the that choice is not on the winning side, too forking bad, they will go down in flames, just like the rest of us when we make a bad decision on our invenstments. They had better wake up soon to who pays their bills, and stop snivelling, laying prone before the government handout commitees whining that they had no idea....... Wake up people and get a grip. If you take away our right to free enterprize and the free flow of information, there will be a civil war against those who would manipulate us into slavery for their bottom line!
