Boston Globe columnist Jeff Jacoby argues against government subsidies to journalists and the news media.  (My two cents: anyone who believes that a government-subsidized press would not be a politically beholdened press – a press leashed like a lap dog to its paymaster’s fist – is hopelessly out of touch with reality.)
