From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
We, the American People, do NOT want another freedom-destroying "tax" on conservative Truth and regular commerce in our country. 1. A "Drudge tax" on news commentators like The Drudge Report, who stand on the front lines of the fight to expose and defeat the leftist agenda; 2. A "journalism division" of AmeriCorps forcing taxpayers to pay the leftist Obama regime to train up (brainwash) the next generation of brain dead journalists; 3. A direct journalism bailout to "help pay the salary of every journalist" --WE THE PEOPLE would be forced to fund the liberal media! 4. A 5% tax on electronics, like the iPad; 5. Possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion "Citizenship Media Fund"; This new FTC document combined with the FTC's moves to impose a so-called fairness doctrine pose an ominous threat to conservative speech that would empower obama to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. We, the American people, say NO! to Obama's leftist efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! It's unconstitutional!
