From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am outraged at the FCC’s proposals to tax Americans to fund the training of journalists and media. We (for a little while longer) live in a free market. The market, not a government a funded propaganda machine, should determine which media and which journalists survive or perish. While I realize the FCC is bowing at the alter of socialism, I recommend you go back and read, not only the Constitution, but the Bill of Rights as well. It will shed some light on what the role of government is in this country, not what the current administration says it is.
