I believe in the free enterprise system. If a business does not "make it" on its own, it deserves to fail. If people reject a particular news media outlet, that media should not be subsidized by the taxpayer. We have subsidized PBS for many years. If I choose to watch PBS programming, that is my option, as it is also my option to watch CBS, CNN, ABC, FOX or NBC for my news information. I believe that the proposed restrictions and subsidies are unconstitutional and therefore illegal. This is the United States of America, NOT Venezuela. Thank you Art VanDeraa
