SHOCKING RESEARCH FROM THE DOG-BITES-MAN DEPT: Study: More Gov’t Funding Of The Press, Less Political Corruption Reporting.

“There’s been some talk of having the government bail out newspapers or somehow fundamentally support newspapers. Of course, for good reason, that scares a lot of people who believe that news organizations (not just newspapers, mind you) play an important role in acting as a government corruption watchdog. So it’s interesting to see a new study that found that the more government support the press gets, the less they covered government scandals.”
