FedGov bribing the media


Granite GrokPoliticians like to use massive dumpster bills to reward supporters. Democrats are just better at it. The Obama bailout was loaded with giveaways, but the latest effort includes something new. Taxpayer handouts to members of the media.

Hidden inside thousands of pages is a little ole’ tax credit “equal to 50% of the salary of each journalist—up to $50,000 per journalist annually.”

In other words, taxpayers, most of whom don’t trust the media, would be backstopping their salaries up to 50,000.00 a year. That’s just below the average annual salary of the average working Americans.

The intended effect is obvious: to co-opt journalists into dependent lapdogs. Frankly it's amazing that the existing media lapdogs aren't considered servile enough.
