President's Tax Plan

by David Chaven

When I sat down to write this month’s CEO column, I knew I wanted to talk about something that excited passions and the intense interest of our members. Tax reform immediately sprang to mind.


Last month, the White House released a tax plan, but it left more questions than answers. Now, Congress holds the fate of real, reputable, and trusted news in their hands. On May 18th, to get the ball rolling it officially embarked on the long-awaited attempt at comprehensive tax reform with a hearing, “How Tax Reform Will Grow the Economy and Create Jobs.”


It is vital to remember that members of the news media industry utilize their deductions to reinvest in the quality journalism that every American relies on. The News Media Alliance agrees that creating a “pro-growth” simplified system would benefit individuals and corporations alike. As members of Congress proceed, we ask them to continue providing certain tax incentives to the news media industry that allow companies to reinvest in the tremendous resources necessary to produce the verifiable, high-quality journalism that citizens trust – be it covering the local School Board or the White House.


Past tax reform proposals have called to limit or eliminate the advertising deduction to offset a lowered corporate tax rate. The News Media Alliance unwaveringly supports maintaining the current treatment of advertising costs as an immediately deductible ordinary and necessary business expense. Advertising creates 20 million jobs and adds $5.8 trillion to the U.S. economy, benefiting all levels of economic growth from national manufacturers to local businesses to newspapers. If Congress were to alter this deduction it would distort business decisions and undermine the pro-growth goals of any new bill.


There is a public interest in newspaper companies reinvesting in high-quality, vetted news. Americans may be receiving their news from more sources than ever before, but studies show that news received by premium publishers has a higher level of trust among consumers. That trust comes from knowing that professional journalists and publishers are driven by an ethical standard to report the truth. Gaining the trust of their readership increases subscriptions and has a positive impact on overall revenue. The aforementioned tax deductions allow for newspapers to continually reinvest in the quality news that communities rely on.


The Alliance will continue to advocate for the current treatment of ad tax, Sec. 199, which allows us to write off costs associated with printing the paper, and Sec. 173, the circulation deduction for expenses that help increase subscriber growth. We pride ourselves on supporting real news—our members—so you can trust we will continue to support and champion the industry on Capitol Hill.

LightBulb Radiology Provides Online Face-to-face Imaging Consults Between Patient and Radiologist

 May 11,  2018

Columbus, GA -
Millions of imaging tests are performed in the United States each year.  Although most of these exams are interpreted by a radiologist, patients usually receive their results from the ordering physician.  In many cases, the radiologist, as the imaging expert, is actually the physician best equipped to explain imaging findings. Lightbulb Radiology bridges this gap between the radiologist and the patient. "I came up with the idea after helping several friends and family members with questions about their own imaging, "says Dr. Rourke Stay, the founder of Lightbulb Radiology.  I found I was often able to give them a better appreciation for their imaging findings and what they really mean."

The site, lightbulbradiology.com, allows a patient to upload his/her imaging test through a secure network and then schedule a consult with the radiologist.  From the comfort of their own home, patients can see and understand their imaging test (such as an MRI, CT scan, or ultrasound) and see and talk with the radiologist.  This enables the patient to ask questions and empowers them to make the best choices about their health care.

"Whether it be a lumbar spine MRI in a patient with chronic back pain, an incidental liver lesion seen on a CT scan of the abdomen, or a PET scan in a patient with cancer, the online consult provides a great way for patients to understand what is going on in their own body," says Dr. Stay.

The launch of Lightbulb Radiology coincides with three converging trends in medicine: 1) the use of more accessible telemedicine platforms to deliver care (Google is testing live-video medical advice, Washington Post), 2) radiologists becoming more visible (Radiologists Are Reducing the Pain of Uncertainty, New York Times) and 3) the increased availability of radiology reports and other medical records through patient portals Helping Patients Stay Engaged in their Own Care, US News and World Report).

About the radiologist:
Dr. Stay is a board certified radiologist who trained at the University of Virginia and also completed a fellowship in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at the U of California-San Diego.  His blogs appear on LightbulbRadiology.com and on kevinmd.com.

 GRU named a top military- friendly university by Military Advanced Education 

Military Advanced Education has named Georgia Regents University a top military-friendly institution in its "2015 MAE Guide to Colleges and Universities" that measures the best practices in military and veteran education.

"We appreciate this recognition, because our institution is committed to striving for new ways to improve our services
for our military, veterans, and their families," said Carol Giardina, Director of GRU's Office of Military and Veterans Services.

MAE's Guide presents the results of a survey of military-supportive policies at more than 600 colleges and universities which provides students with information about institutions that support veteran and military students.

This year, each institution was evaluated on their military culture, financial aid, flexibility, on-campus support, and online support services.

"We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities," said Kelly Fodel, MAE's editor.

GRU's services for veteran andmilitary personnel include the development of the VET-2-VET mentoring program, veteran discussion groups, and the GRU Military Resource Center, which is a one-stop-shop for service members.

The university also participates in several initiatives such as the Yellow Ribbon Program to assist military and veteran students to pay tuition at the in-state rate.

In addition to academic support, GRU has partnered with Fort Gordon and the National Collegiate Athletic Association to host the 2014 Peach Belt Conference Men's and Women's Cross Country Championship as well as develop leadership programs for student athletes.

This is not the first time GRU has been recognized for its military-friendly initiatives.

Earlier this year, Victory Media, a global military media firm, ranked GRU among the top 15 percent of institutions doing the most to embrace America's military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

This was the second year in a row GRU was recognized by the firm.
