FTC Explores Future of Journalism in Internet Age

Tuesday, 01 Dec 2009 12:21 AM

WASHINGTON -- The federal government is wading into deliberations over the future of journalism.

With the media business in distress, the Federal Trade Commission is holding a two-day workshop Tuesday and Wednesday to examine the challenges facing the industry and to explore ways the government might help it survive.

While media executives hope to find new business models, government officials say they want to discuss ways to preserve a free press as a pillar of democracy.

Among the panelists at the FTC event are News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch and Huffington Post founder Arianna Huffington.
