Wasn't there some guy named Andrew Yang who proposed doing exactly that?
It's almost impossible to list off all the news organizations that are hurting, closing or firing people right now, (the New York Times did a recent sampling), but suffice it to say that pain is being felt in every outlet, except for a select few (which I will get to.)[...]Paradoxically demand for news is off the charts. People desperately want to know about all facets of the pandemic--a never-before-experienced phenomenon--plus they have more time, working from home or being jobless. Readership and viewership actually doubled at some properties in March.But here's the rub. Marketers won't place their ads next to the endless parade of horrific coronavirus stories. (That's what happens when the news turns bad--like in the wake of 9/11 for instance.) Plus, millions of businesses that would be advertising right now are shuttered, bankrupt or slashing marketing budgets. (Sports advertising for instance has gone to zero.) So while audience numbers are soaring, ad numbers are plunging.Advertising is the problem, which is nothing new. It's just worse now.
