The price for coverage should be raised for any government related news material from anyone. That's right, not just from a confirmed government
sources when we all know the government could just hire a thrid party to try for the cheaper price to get what they want to say out to the public.
Every time the government does what the majority of average citizens dont like, the price have coverage should increase. If the gov wants to save
money they better not start something that's not actually for the ppl they supposed to be for.
That negativity showcased keeps the government in the news and ppl's eyes glued... Would the government pay to have things revealed that the public
would more than likely find negative? It would be on the government to straighten up its act so that they wont have to... Or else the coverage price
gets raised. The more positive stuff they release, based on majority of news viewers opinions, then just maybe the coverage price should begin to
lower to a certain point though so they dont try to sucker the press and news media.
The government would be begging for mercy if the press and news media flex it's freedom of the press to exercize their freedom alright. Yeah, freedom
to not showcase the government in any way. Ppl who'd want to speak on behave of the government would have to pay up. You wouldnt hear about some guy
taken off the terror list just because Congress voted them off it when you know their are other ppl on the list who shouldnt be put in a situation
where it takes majority of votes from Congress to help em out. This shows the negative side in government that it would take getting on some form to
be written up about you for you to be considered by votes to be taken off some terror watch list. That's bull. Besides, why would the gov want to
tell the public instead of just notify that specific person and remove him from whatever computerized relayed system that ties in with air ports and
Screw the government. It's time for them to pay top dollar and go through a struggle (make it a raising price struggle) like the rest of the average
Americans. They already arent held accountable by far for not doing what they supposed to and doing what they not supposed to. Why would any one not
want them to at least have to pay up for coverage?
They got certain programmed to think if they dont watch the government is going to come on them like a thief to take away their rights and freedoms.
They aint Jesus.
But if they wont pay so that ppl know what they doing, then there would be less fear. And less fear to act against overbaring laws. More ppl wouldnt
take the gov seriously. And so in a jury they would be like... Well hey, we didnt even know there was a new law passed that says you cant do such n
such any more... Then the jury is more likely to do what? Say the defendant is not guilty since the government failed in informing it's new law with
responsibility. (Haha, the gov would be treated like someone who ducked out of paying child support then). This would reveal the weakness in a
government that tries to lock every one up or get them to pay in some way for things that shouldnt even be considered crimes.
And the government wouldnt be affective in ordering martial law if they dont pay up for coverage.
Face it, the government needs the press and news media period. And if they can squeeze bucks out of the gov, then those bucks can do wonders. The
government such as your state or local government would think twice before informing the public of something petty like informing that ppl can no
longer wear sagging pants. If the government finds it wouldnt be worth paying for, then they might not even make a new petty law to begin with. See
what I'm saying?
By the way, we can boycott outlets if they meet up for that government word stuff if they're going to give coverage for free.
Ever wonder how much the journalist get paid to come along in war zones? Does the government pay them when the government got the news media and press
begging for stories or something to report? It shouldnt be that way. The government should have to pay journalist to come into danger zones or to see
how the military is doing. If they wont pay, then at least the journalist will remain safe and sound. The news media isnt awaken right now because
they all on the governments [feeding trough] without getting paid by the government. So we need to get the press and news media to excerize freedom of
press in a way the government gets a cramp in its hip air time. This is way overdue.
