From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The Federal Trade Commission's bureaucratic plan for the “Reinvention of Journalism” outlines a series of taxes that would stifle free speech and silence conservatives and is clearly part of an extensive attempt by the Obama Administration to seize control of the press. Your attempt to stifle conservative speech will empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. This move is appalling and I say “NO!” to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! The FTC wants to tax conservative speech and then use our tax dollars to both train and pay the salaries of the liberal media! I think NOT! Hasn't the Obama administration destroyed my America enough? Don't forget for whom you work. We the People will fire you just as we will fire Obama and his czars and cronies.
