    Here's the headline:

    Obama open to newspaper bailout bill

    I guess the White House is starting to panic at the thought of losing their main propaganda machine.

    I will miss the crosswords, but that is all. The rest is just disinformation and meaningless junk.

    If they hadn't thrown away their tradition of Objective Journalism, they wouldn't have lost as many readers.

    I don't want nor need a subscription, I wish I could "opt out".

    We need as many newpapers to go under as possible

    How else can we be responsible recyclers and rid them of all their linotype?

    Wait a minute. How am I supposed to house train my new dogs? And the parakeet? What are y'all thinking?

    Seriously, if you can't bring your product in line with what it is that consumers desire, tough sheet.

    I am of the opinion that the government bailing out any newspaper would be a US Constitution first amendment violation. Think about it for a minute. How could we have freedom of the press if the government is financially backing any major news source? If this happens it will nullify the term conflict of interest. My guess is that those bastards in congress supporting such a bailout will argue that the constitution only guarantees freedom of the press and there is no constitutional prohibition of government creating a controlled bias.

    This thing is getting worse by the minute.:mad:

    You are ruining it for them. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

    I think they could have used some 0f the 23.7 trillion dollars they stole from the people in the last bailout.

    They will argue how can the press be free if it is not existent. And the robot will agree.

    When the inflation hits from all the $$ Bary is printing, you can use paper money for both.
