    NPR is a very liberal newsource. Of course its not having any financial trouble. As you said, they are publicly funded. Whenever they need more money, they run to Congress and ask for more.

    Well, no, they get public money indirectly, not straight from Congress, and most comes from listeners and private donors.

    It's not "very liberal" either.

    Doesn't matter. What matters is what people are willing to pay for. Why bail out an industry, whether the Gov't even takes control or not, if that industry is just going to tank when the bailout or assistance runs dry?

    Other sources? Uh...the website of a newspaper is the same source, just in a different form. Again, distribution problem.

    Maybe you didn't get it the fourth time.

    Oh silly of me not to see this before!
    Well, you don't see the obvious. Even when you argue the opposite of your own graph and articles. Again, you don't read. You just assume what you wish to be true.

    It's not that people aren't wanting the product, no no, it's distribution!
    Still pretending that the websites of newspapers aren't getting huge amounts of hits eh?

    Oh I forgot. Your FEELINGS say that the product is the problem despite 60+ MILLION page hits and MILLIONS of unique IDs visiting newspaper websites for the same content.

    I CAN'T STOP THESE FEELINGS! OH THESE FEELINGS! SO MANY FEELINGS!

    They should pass a law forcing all american's to subscribe to Government approved papers. To solve this dire problem!
    Or you could just read the actual text of the speech for a change.

    I CAN'T STOP THESE FEELINGS! OH THESE FEELINGS! SO MANY FEELINGS!

    What is so amusing about your behavior is you defended Bush against the speculative feelings of liberals...yet you have problem doing the same thing here. HYPOCRITE.

    NPR is very liberal. They even joke about it.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Indirectly through the Corp. for Public Broadcasting. Not sure what that has to do with my comment though. They still get a large share of their money, around $100 million, from the government trough. That's not even counting indirect payments like use of government satellites.

    Name a few conservative regular programs on NPR.

    WSJ online, growing successful business model.

    That's all need be said OC.

    If people are turning to other methods of news, if certain companies cannot make a profit, then they just need to go away.

    You say there is a vital need for the Journalist product, I agree. However, let the market figure out the best way to create a profitable product that people are willing to pay for.

    Why is that concept beyond you?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
