Quote of the Day

“Print media is wonderful, and it would be a shame to ever see it fail. But these are businesses that need to sustain themselves in one way or another. Looking for a government handout to perpetuate a quaint but outdated way of life is the last resort of the desperate.”
–Tech Cruncher Mike Arrington, commenting on an elite white men’s conference (oops, I meant Davos) where the President of Columbia University apparently suggested that print media should be subsidized by the government if it’s not economically viable in the future.
Susan sez: Is this an assertion that’s just too easy to kick aside? Or a real point in the Davos play?
Either way, it hit my knee-jerk free speech reflex.
