Cable Choice and Competition Act

When I was young, we had these things called newspapers that actually 
covered local government meetings.  They had people that they called 
reporters who went to the meetings and then wrote stories that could be read 
in minutes telling what happened.  Instead of spending the whole evening 
watching a meeting to see the one or two things that you cared about, you 
could read what happened over breakfast.

Of course, most newspapers long ago end such coverage.

I wonder if the tax on cable TV could go to subsidizing the coverage of 
local government in local newspapers?
