“Journalism cannot survive…”

Just like the USPS situation, another feature, not a bug. This industry will see no bailout package signed by Trump.

Journalism won’t see any bailout money. But America needs more small bi-weeklies providing community journalism ie reporting city council county meetings. They can survive with ad revenue and truth and they have but successful ones get bought by corporate chains who pay journalist nothing. Have a nice weekend. Truth is non-essential.
