Comments on: Moody’s reads newspapers Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: Nic Fulton Mon, 24 Nov 2008 17:33:34 +0000 If you look as newspapers (and journalism) as a requirement for a functioning democracy, there’s an argument (perhaps weak) they should be bailed-out like the banks. A real meltdown in journalism (TV, web, papers) would enable government to screw the voters without worrying about being discovered. Of course the bail-out would end up making the US look a lot like Europe with much more state-funded media.
