From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Your proposal to "Reinvent Journalism" is ridiculous. The LAST thing this country needs at this point is more taxes of any form for any purpose. You can't spend your way out of a depression. As for journalism, the best thing that could happen to the mainstream media would be for it to GO AWAY! Your proposals are a total sham that hides an agenda that seeks to destroy this country by keeping the current administration in power, taking over control of the media, and distorting or hiding the truth of what's truly going on. You must think that the citizens of this country are stupid! I assure you that's far from the truth - we see what you're doing and we don't like it one bit! If you really want to "reinvent journalism", try bringing back accountability in reporting and teaching journalists to report all the facts NOT just what fits their agenda. The American public wants the truth - ALL OF IT in their news! Something which we don't get anymore and haven't for some time now. That's the primary reason the mainstream media is going down - they don't report the truth anymore, we can't trust the vile crap spewing out of their mouths/keyboards, so we have no choice but to seek more reliable sources of news. Any attempt to push through this joke of a proposal will be met with maximum resistance!
