Tweaking the First Amendment for Freedom of the Press

If you wanted to beef up the 1st Amendment's take on freedom of the press, how would you do it?

Here's the text (with the other issues removed for brevity):

"Congress shall make no law... abridging...the freedom...of the press;..."

So how's this going?

And given the current violations of it, how might we craft a brand new amendment in such a way as to protect the press more explicitly?

For instance, would we explicitly rule out any of these things:

    Taxation of the press
    The "Fairness Doctrine"
    Regulation of the Press
    Regulation of the Internet
    Government ownership of the press
    Government grants, loans, or bailouts to the press
    FCC regulation

Thoughts?
