No quite interesting actually. But would it be smart to publicly finance the media? That way it could risk to be state-controlled as regards its content...

A theme I see developing is the relative weakness of funding for the fourth estate, especially compared with that going to the first, second and third estates - parliament, government and the judiciary.

Too boring?
