One response to “Newspapers Do Not Need a Tax Bailout”

  1. William M. Hartnett

    I wouldn’t get too worked up about the president saying he’s “happy to look” at a proposal to provide tax breaks for newspapers that want to become 501(c)(3) non-profits. I hardly think tax breaks to restructure as a non-profit would constitute a “bailout.”

    Or maybe they would, much like the giant tax breaks that states and municipalities hand out to big data center operators. The $100 million in tax breaks Google is receiving in exchange for situating a data center in Lenoir, North Carolina, for example.
