Whether you approve of the news media exposing Richard Nixon for participating in the attempted cover up of the Watergate break in, Bill Clinton's preference for low rent floozies, or disapprove of both, be grateful--forget the biases for a moment--that media exists. The alternative is TASS. Remember the Tony Soprano Rule; they only offer the money to take over the operation.
Bear in mind that this is the theft-by-regulation crowd. What a shock that they want to reinvent print media among some of the Loopy Left's most reliable supporters, US universities' journalism colleges.

The records of how and why they do things is protected by federal law that shields them from scrutiny.
Under federally imposed secrecy, in back door meetings of legislators, and through the oversight of unelected regulators, this is the O-bumites' latest attack on the First Amendment in the guise of strengthening the Fourth Estate.

This is an example of a federal program. It provides welfare daycare; its clientèle are mostly unemployed welfare recipients. It is a holdover from Lyndon Johnson's Great Welfare Society that has proved to be ineffective, fraudulent, and wasteful; however, it continues to receive tax dollars because it helps to maintain the size of the federal bureaucracy. Understand that if a federal program continues to get funding, it is because government officials are benefiting from it. Are you happy about the way that they spend your money?
May your gods be with you.
