Frankly, despite my horror of the press, I'd love to rise from the grave every ten years or so and go buy a few newspapers.
I think you have a danger of regulating, putting regulations in place which will mean there will be no press in 10 years to regulate.
The more material there is, the more need there is for filters. You don't need a printing press anymore, but you do need people who know how to cultivate sources, double-check information and put the brand of legitimacy on it.
I think the press has an interest in communicating to its viewers or readers, and their viewers or readers drive profit for those news organizations, so I think those news organizations have a certain bias toward their own readers. Yeah, I think they are a special interest. Of course they are.
Every President hates the Press.
