[Fwd: Will The Washington Post Get a Government Bailout?]


So tired of having our  tax dollars
being mis-spent on bailing out big corps who have made bad decisions
Banks Failed because of their Greed & being scammed by Madoff
Car Companies failed because they are making shoddy cars & not
keeping up with the times & needs of American Buyers & having
prices that people can’t afford when they are taking Pay Cuts due to
all of our Factory & Call Center Jobs being Out Sourced to
Non-American Employees in 3rd World Countries

Now the News Papers Want Our Tax Dollars because they can’t Sell their
Papers? They haven’t kept up with the times we are in & offering
enews alerts with links to the news on their websites or twitter
updates etc & most importantly they have failed to provide news in
a timely manner that offers All Sides to the important news of the day
so their readership is dropping because there just isn’t any interest
in their news papers so our tax dollars should now go towards paying
for their lack of leadership & poor management decisions?
Call your congress people & tell them enough is enough – pass
extensions on the unemployment benefits for the American citizens so
they can keep their homes & apartments & afford to buy food
& heat & let the news papers start becoming relevant so that
people might want to buy them instead of wasting money on those select
few big business people

Those people who are running the papers, well maybe it’s time for them
to divest & split & stop being irrelevant reporting in a skewed
manner & reporting more on what’s going on with the working people
who chose or chose not to buy their papers – if the tiny local Free
Papers can afford to keep going then there is no reason that those
giant news paper corporations can’t learn from their example &
downsize where they need & start reporting in a manner that will
make the working people Want to Buy Their Paper Again like we used to
in times past back in the day when news papers actually did some Real
Reporting of News

Dear Reader,

This past week the battle over the future of news came to a head. Len
Downie, a vice president and the former editor of The Washington Post,
called for government funding for journalism. Downie added his voice to
a chorus of liberals, politicians and journalists who want government
very involved in the news.

While Downie claims it isn’t a bailout, that’s exactly what he’s
calling for. Dan Gainor of the Business & Media Institute, our
sister department, called it in a report released a week before
Downie’s effort. Gainor’s analysis of “The Great Newspaper Bailout” is
a sobering look at how involved government is trying to get in the
daily news.

Here are just a few scary facts;

• This year both houses of
Congress, the FCC and the Federal Trade Commission have all held
hearings on the future of journalism. Bills to aid newspapers have been
proposed in both the House and Senate.
• Liberal groups are pushing for $60 billion for a “bridge” to the
future of journalism – the ultimate bridge to nowhere.
• The media are also planning for the future. A media foundation report
just urged government to mandate nationwide broadband Internet access.
They forgot to mention it could cost up to $350 billion.

“The Great Newspaper Bailout” is
the kind of essential news about business and the economy that the
Business & Media Institute delivers on a regular basis.

Each week, BMI’s newsletter, the Balance Sheet, reports on the biggest
business or economic trends that impact you. Then they show just how
the media are spinning those trends. This ranges from economic
reporting that made a good economy look bad when George Bush was
president, to journalists trying to find the silver lining in nearly 10
percent unemployment under Barack Obama. BMI helps you understand what
the news media isn’t telling you about America’s economic health and
liberals’ attacks on free enterprise.

I strongly urge you to sign up for the Balance Sheet,
their free weekly newsletter.

Thanks for your time, and for subscribing to the CNSNews.com E-Brief,

Craig Bannister
