The FTC wants to save the old dinosaur media. ...

Didn’t have to be Nostra-friggin-damus to see this one coming :)
thanks for the heads up.
Can’t, conflict of interest. The whole freedom of the press thing was to insure someone would be watching government. If they are beholden to government they can’t be trusted to watch (I know, they aren’t now but at least they aren’t paid). It’s the difference between being a prostitute and being a whore.
Actually, it's the difference between being a slut and being a whore.
No, if the government pays them they’re prostitutes. They’re already sluts.
Oh great, they want us to pay for the “journalists” who lie to us and campaign for pols who want to destroy this country? Usefull idiots. At some point, the dictator gets rid of the media that got him in power. And they really don’t see that.
