From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Tax payers and the US Government should not be subsidizing the media in any way, shape or form. There should be a separation of state and media so that biases can be kept from influencing the free press. I am opposed to the FTC‘s “Reinventing Journalism” campaign. Please cease this unconstitutional effort. The US Government should have no part in financially supporting and influencing the media. This effort by the FTC would violate a trust that we the people have in our freedom of speech.
