From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
****The Federal Trade Commission will hold its second two-day workshop on the future of journalism March 9-10, 2010**** Perhaps I've missed something but what business is it of the FTC to decide the future of journalism? Isn't this up to journalists (The Press)? ****The workshop will address proposals to better-support and lower the costs of journalism.**** Where does this support come from and isn't it up to these "journalists" to take care of this? Somehow this reeks of another taxpayer bailout and more taking over of another section of the free market. I vote to call off this meeting!! It's unconstitutional!
