The State of New Jersey Wants to Subsidize News. Uh-oh.

Unless you live in a bomb shelter and have canceled your cable TV and internet services, you’ve heard that the newspaper business has run aground. Advertising revenue is down 67 percent since 2005, and as panicked publishers shutter newspapers, reduce the number of days they publish, lay off journalists and cut local coverage to balance their books, the likelihood that great swaths of the country will become “news deserts,” devoid of accountability reports on government and corporations, has grown.

News deserts. HA! Have they looked in the mirror at their own programs?

If there is a true demand then the market will provide. Assuming the market is allowed to do its job of course, which it wont be if the gvt steps it to try and 'save' it as they are suggesting here.
