From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Would not the Federal Government giving money to finance the future of journalism be a conflict of interest. There is always strings attached when money is given especially from the government. Journalism's future should be in the hands of the people who own the newspapers, magazines, radio station. etc... Let them sell more shares of stock, raise prices, or cut back on how large it is. I have yet to see anything the government takes over not become a political hold for whatever party that is in power. Leave the future of journalism to the future and leave the government out of it. NO MONEY FROM THE GOVERNMENT. The government, My/any government gives money privileges and requirements and special consideration are expected. Any normal sane person knows this. Leave the future of journalism alone.
