Obama open to Newspaper bailoutSubmitted by a_silence_production on Mon, 09/21/2009 - 02:46
My roommate works for Huffington Post and he says they'll likely be slamming any attempts by the administration if they indeed move to socialize and propagate the mainstream media.
From The Hill:
'Obama said that good journalism is "critical to the health of our democracy," but expressed concern toward growing tends in reporting -- especially on political blogs, from which a groundswell of support for his campaign emerged during the presidential election.
"I am concerned that if the direction of the news is all blogosphere, all opinions, with no serious fact-checking, no serious attempts to put stories in context, that what you will end up getting is people shouting at each other across the void but not a lot of mutual understanding," he said.'
