From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I think this is ridiculous! Journalism doesn't need public support - if it accepts money there will be controls! Journalists should be free to "tell it like it is" — in their opinion. Certainly there will be different opinions. Present law seem to be sufficient. If it ain't broke, don't try to fix it! It appears to me that this is but another attempt to stife free press or have the public pay for a particular viewpoint, ie, liberal - socialist. Thank you for allowing me to share MY opinion; I may not be able to do for so much longer at the rate the Obama administration is going at it!
