City Of Greensboro Subsidizes News & Record

Don't get me wrong, before I became a starving Tyrannicide I was most well known as a starving poet, I love the arts but it hardly seems right that Greensboro, North Carolina is getting national attention for a City funded arts group, ArtsGreensboro, to provide payments to the News & Record for arts coverage:

"Here’s the disclosure the paper will use: “This News & Record arts coverage is supported by contributions to ArtsGreensboro’s Arts & Theatre Media Fund.”

So in reality, indirectly, your tax dollars are being used to subsidize the Greensboro News & Record.  Think about it, who is really winning, artists or Warren Buffett?
