Then instead of getting a paper each day, you just flip on some thin device and it uploads the news and you can still sit at the breakfast table and read it. And also, articles can be updated easier as is done on the internet. I don't know if it will work, but maybe the media needs to be thinking along lines like that. Come up with something new which can compete. The online news will still be read though, and they can focus there.

    He's absolutely wrong. Government's job is not to save businesses that cannot adapt to changes in the business climate. Where was the Government when Monkeywards went under? Or Kmart collapsed? When was the last time you shopped at a Woolsworth?

    There is no danger whatsoever of the Journalism Industry going out of business, only a danger of certain elements/companies going under because they cannot adapt to the changing times.

    Government needs to stay out, let the market sort it out. Sure, business will cease to be, new ones will arise, and journalism will evolve.
    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.

    Okay, but that's a different issue.

    No it's not.

    The Government should stay as far away from the Media as possible.

    This is how they circumvent the 1st Amendment.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Kinda. It's more "Don't bite the hand that feeds you" Syndrome. When suddenly your business (journalism) is reliant on Government monies, do you really think you'll be doing stories that are critical of said government?

    It's a slippery slope argument to be sure, but history shows the merits of fearing such.
