From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The FTC and for that matter all Fed Gov agencies should stay out of the business of Journalism. It is not up to the Government to direct resources or ways that we will get our news. If the Internet puts certain news outlets out of business so be it, that is the way market forces act. Is the Government going to have a forum on how to bring back the telegram too? Leave our free speech alone. The FTC should be regulating the dissemination of the frequency band and that is it. We will not subsidize your attempt to socialize journalism and control free speech.
