Newspapers as non-profits

As a group that, by and large, operates in the world of 501(c)3, what dear readers, do you think about the concept of newspapers being transformed into nonprofits?

It makes a certain amount of sense, and it would save them from being plundered by private interests. It would, though, take them out of the endorsements business.
