The MSM or Lamestream media, especially the print newspapers, have been in decline for some time now. Cash only to say the least with some of these bankrupt business enterprises.
In fact, the latest circulation figures were released this morning.
The Left-wing biased of media and their strangle-hold on what Americans read has been broken. Thanks to the internet, blogs and social media for making America’s free press – really free.
No, Chris, Senator John Kerry wants to bailout the Boston Globe and other newspapers to guarantee favorable left-wing coverage of events.
Does that sound self-perpetuating?
More dead trees for the benefit of the LEFT.
What will Al Gore say?
How much do you need……?
Don’t think some of the newspapers that are declaring bankruptcy will EVER make it back.
This is the finding that struggling daily newspapers donâ€™t want to hear: 61% of American adults are confident that online and other news sources will make up the difference and report things people want to know about if many newspapers go out of business.
But the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 35% still lack confidence in other news sources to make up the difference.
Thirty percent (30%) are now Very Confident that sources other than newspapers will provide the news they want, while only eight percent (8%) are not at all confident of that.
This data comes just a month after a survey found Americans find the reliability of online news sources comparable to that in their local print newspaper.
The newspaper and media stocks should now be considered toxic assets. But, you know, the LEFT is trying to bail them out.
How stupid is that?
Yet, 37 per Cent of American voters want a government bailout of the newspaper industry.
Thirty-seven percent (37%) of Americans favor federal government subsidies to keep newspapers in business, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Forty-three percent (43%) say itâ€™s better to let the papers go out of business, and 20% are not sure what to do.
Thirty-two percent (32%) of Americans believe some newspapers are too important to fail. Fifty percent (50%) reject this idea.
Fifty-one percent (51%) oppose a bill introduced in the U.S. Senate last week that would let newspapers become tax-exempt non-profit organizations as long as they donâ€™t endorse political candidates. Thirty-three percent (33%) support the measure proposed by Democratic Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland.
But 53% agree with Cardin that losing the newspaper industry is â€œa real tragedy for communities across the nation and for our democracy,â€ while 31% disagree.
An interesting poll would be as to whom should the taxation fall to bail out the newspapers?
Want to bet it is the RICH?
