Is it always a bad idea to get government involved in journalism? | Stephen Kimber

Tim Bousquet
I hesitate to disagree with Tim Bousquet, the editor of The Halifax Examiner, my colleague and boss. But in this instance I do. Not completely, but significantly. Tim was writing last week about a proposal by a group called News Media Canada - née Newspapers Canada - which had called on the federal government to subsidize Canada's failing legacy media industry (also, and more accurately in this instance, identifiable as the print-on-paper newspaper industry) to the tune of $350 million a year per year ad infinitum to both reward them for having mismanaged themselves to the edge of extinction and also to save them from themselves. Tim pointed us to a recent CANADALAND interview between Bob Cox, the self-interested chair of News Media Canada and publisher of the Winnipeg Free Press, and Jesse Brown, the at least partly self-interested owner-operator of CANADALAND. But does it naturally follow, as Tim suggests, that "it's always a bad idea to get the government involved in journalism?"

About

The Halifax Examiner was founded by investigative reporter Tim Bousquet.
Before starting the Examiner, Bousquet exposed corruption and misspending in Halifax for seven years as the news editor of The Coast altweekly. He uncovered the waste of millions of dollars in the Commonwealth Games bid fiasco. He revealed the dirty details of Halifax's concert scandal. When no one would say what had happened to the sewage plant in 2009, he explained how it had broken. Bousquet's 2012 article "A trust betrayed," about Mayor Peter Kelly's impropriety in handling the estate of a family friend, was named the best investigative news reporting of that year in the country by the Canadian Association of Journalists; as a result of the article, Kelly declined to run for reelection. In 2013, Bousquet investigated the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a promising young woman in 2010; after "Holly Bartlett's unlikely journey" was published, the police department announced it was reviewing its investigation. Bousquet is responsible for fearless investigative reporting that makes a difference, and the Halifax Examiner continues that tradition. It is an independent, adversarial news site devoted to holding the powerful accountable. Testimonials "Bousquet has had more journalistic impact on the community than most well-staffed, well-funded newsrooms. His research leads to his personal conclusions, which open issues to public discourse." -Costas Halavrezos, former host of CBC's Maritime Noon, present-day spice merchant "Tim Bousquet is crusty, smart, diligent, determined and contemptuous of pomposity and dishonesty. "Tim is a dogged, tenacious reporter, a guy who combines old-school, shoe-leather muckraking with an open-minded, intellectual curiosity about the ways that journalism is evolving in the Internet age.
