From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It has come to my attention that the FCC and FTC plan on manipulating our freedom of speech with the "Reinvention of Journalism". This new FTC document combined with the FCC’s moves to impose a “Fairness Doctrine", an ominous threat to conservative speech that would empower any presidential administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. We simply say “NO!” to your efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! and "NO" to the taxing of conservative speech and then using our tax dollars to both train and pay the salaries of the liberal media! We Americans have enjoyed the freedom of speech for over 230 years and we will NOT have this liberty censored, stifled, or even taxed when so many of our men and women have paid the ultimate price with their lives to protect this very right. Please do not allow this "reinvention" to continue. Thank you. Wanda Bradford
