From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am appalled that the FCC and the federal government has designs to take over all forms of media and public information. The federal government has no business controlling the flow of information that comes in various forms, including the main stream media, talk radio, the internet etc. The Constitution states that the US government shall not infringe on the freedom of the press, that is exactly what you are trying to do and it is wrong, wrong wrong. What will happen when the only message that gets out is what the government wants us to hear???? There will be no more freedoms and we will take the place of the Soviet Union as the United Socialist States of America. Please rethink your possition.
