• The newspapers you mentioned are in the process of failing because their one-time subscribers have reached the point that they can no longer tolerate biased, liberally slanted propaganda masquerading as news. Ditto the big three television networks; as their coverage became more slanted, viewership fell off and continues to fall.

    As to 501(c)(3) tax status for failing newspapers, I can almost see B. Hussein and his fellow travelers salivating and licking their chops at the prospect. Were that to occur, something all of us should dread, I would predict that it would be less than six months, and probably no more than a month, before one of these "charitable" newspapers received a call from the White House suggesting how they should cover/not cover something. A press that is beholden to the politicians for its very existence, rather than protected from the politicians by the Constitution, is no longer free.

  • Your blogs always remind me of the knowledge I should have really learned instead of memorizing the night before a test. I really enjoy the fact that you always accept the challenges of your readers and back your blogs with the substance of your research. I get so weary of people who really challenge the concepts that developed this country into the great nation it is today. If the introduction of the "Newspaper Revitalization Act" doesn't scare people to death, then nothing is registering. The slanted stats we have already been given in the recent months are just the tip of a very dangerous iceberg. The average person really doesn't get the political ramifications of government control of information. Socialism sneaks in and then runs the business as they want. It isn't for the common good. It never has been. If government controls the newspapers, it will eliminate one more opposition that would lead to the absolute destruction of this nation. Sometimes, I feel like America has become the frog in the boiling pot.
