Newspapers spend $1.6m lobbying US government

From sfnblog:

The Newspaper Association of America (NAA) spent almost US$1.6 million last year lobbying the U.S. government on issues ranging from advertising to freedom of information requests, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.

I’m not sure which is more broken: the US government’s lobbying process, or the NAA’s need to spend so much protecting their position.
