Press bailout?

Dan Rather thinks the government should step in to save the press from tanking.

That's pretty rich, coming from a guy who OK'd a laughably lame memo as "evidence" former President Bush avoided Texas Air National Guard duty:

"Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather called on President Barack Obama to form a White House commission to help save the press Tuesday night in an impassioned speech at the Aspen Institute. ...

"Such a commission on media reform, Rather said, ought to make recommendations on saving journalism jobs and creating new business models to keep news organizations alive."

You mean, socialize the press. Ministry of Truth, anyone?

The mainstream media has a bad case of Not Knowing How To Adapt To A Changing World, so it's up to Uncle Sugar to keep them on the teat. Yeah, right.

Die, MSM parasites. Bow to the New Media.
