Policymakers need to take a page from American history. The framers understood that the government must not simply assure that a free and independent press may exist; it must set policies and expend resources with an eye toward guaranteeing that an independent free press will exist.
The press will exist as long as there is demand for it. Why force something that is unwanted? Why subsidize information?
The government thrives on failure, and in doing so, it only makes things worse.
