From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The Obama FTC is attempting to commit the liberal press to permanent, government-run life support, with the federal monolith and the state-funded press each supporting the other in perpetuity. Your prescription is to raise taxes, reduce competition, expand government, drain the profit and control the news, all of which goes against the grain of the American people. The FTC should not be intervening to save a dying industry at tax-payer expense, and at the expense of our First Amendment freedoms.
