News Briefs – Volume XI

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories…

Brief 1:  The Democrats and Obama have been making some noise about providing subsidies for the dead tree media.  Maybe this is a quid pro quo since most newspapers have been propping  them up for decades and Obama for the past few years.  Before you get all freaky on this concept, remember that it has been used quite successfully in other countries.  The United States would join the ranks of Venezuela, China, Russia (they’ve gone a step further and have actually “cancelled” some journalists to decrease supply), North Korea and Nazi Germany.
