A bold strategy for saving journalism?

I think I want to read this book:  The Death and Life of American Journalism: The Media Revolution That Will Begin the World Again

"Daily newspapers are closing across America. Washington bureaus are shuttering; whole areas of the federal government are now operating with no press coverage. International bureaus are going, going, gone. Journalism, the counterbalance to corporate and political power, the lifeblood of American democracy, is not just threatened. It is in meltdown."  The authors "...propose a bold strategy for saving journalism and saving democracy, one that looks back to how the Founding Fathers ensured free press protection with the First Amendment and provided subsidies to the burgeoning print press of the young nation."

If only I could find the time...maybe in March.
