Texas J-school prof, writing in Dallas News, suggests news should be what public needs, not wants | News for Dallas, Texas | Opinion: Viewpoints

"Is it naïve or idealistic to expect the media to operate outside a capitalist and competitive system in which profit is the bottom line? Perhaps we should start exploring new ways to fund the media so they won't be susceptible to market forces."
