From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Journalists should not be subsidized in any way by the government. AmeriCorps is directed and funded by the government and should, therefore, not be involved in any way with journalism. Any government control, funding, or influence with the press is a conflict of interest with Free Speech. The government must not "Reinvent" journalism. It is the government's job to protect journalism at all levels from being "Reinvented" by any entity, especially the government. Hands off the press in all its forms!!!
