From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I have been reading up on your plans for the future of journalism and I wanted to express my opinion that this is the most under handed, dishonest, not to mention unconstitutional actions of which I have ever heard. The press is to be free to suceed or fail. Their relationship to one another should be only the competition to get the story first, not this low minded behavior of trying to shut up the competition because you don't believe with their politics. The press is to be impartial in it's stories, both what it covers and what it says about what it covers. You pick and choose to cover the stories in the way that they will shine the best light on your favorites so the chill can run up your perverted leg. The press is to have a confrontational relationship with government. You are selling your souls by the steps you are taking. When big government bails you out they will hold your chains. The great news men of history hide their eyes in shame at your behavior. Disgraceful.
