58 robert_d Translation, give us money. The Star is owned by a few very rich families that want taxpayer money.
101 bollocktitude This is the Star whining about wanting taxpayers to bail them out. Fuck them.

17 I3------D Journalist graduate here. Journalists are NOT important to democracy. An accurate and understandable flow of information is. Fox News? YouTube ? We need to define journalism.
