From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I strongly oppose the "reinvention of journalism". I do not want my tax dollars used to bail out failing media groups. I want the free market system to prune out what should be discarded. I do not want the FTC to touch the constitutional rights of free speech by funding or supporting failing media groups. The state has no right to limit or control media groups under a guise of support. I also strongly oppose the Fairness doctrine or any effort used to control conservative speech.
