Not-So-Free Press Files Bankruptcy - 2

Once upon a time Dredd Blog had the notion that the press could reach the point of bankruptcy.

Perish the thought.

Now certain senators contemplate that even states can file bankruptcy ... what ... States? Like Iowa? ... yes like Iowa ...

Does the impending collapse of civilization escape everyone:
The rumors are that a number of publishers of newspapers will have to file bankruptcy in this economic storm.

This storm we can't seem to get a handle on as to its depth and its width and its dangers.

Some significant newspapers have already taken the plunge and are struggling to avoid a Chapter 11 becoming a Chapter 7.

Read about the danger to newspapers in the US in general at our news links where we link to the Newsosaur.

You need to.

Because you need to realize how important the free internet is going to become.

It is now or soon will be the real and true FREE PRESS.

Keep on bloggin' in the free world.
Ok, fine, but that is not what "you" are doing.


  1. Don't worry, the internet won't be free for long either. In fact, the monetization has barely just begun. Monetizing the internet's not only good for profits (and God knows profits are king now), but it's great for stifling dissent under the cover of "free markets" as well. Fortunately for most of us, we won't be able to afford an internet connection (never mind a computer or one of the gazillion hand held devices we're being trained to worship!) anyway, so it's all good.

  2. has the not so free press heard about this, Dredd? They seem a little slow on the uptake.

    take care, Kathy

  3. Reminds me of the lord sith hissing "gooooooooooood" to the soon to be Darth Vader.
