From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am in unequivocal opposition to “any and all efforts to censor, limit, or restrain free speech – on conservative or Christian talk radio, on the internet or anywhere else. I am also opposed to the following attempts to limit free speech: * A “Drudge Tax” on news aggregators like The Drudge Report who stand on the front lines of the struggle to expose the Leftist agenda. * A “journalism division” of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! * A direct Journalism Bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist” -- YOU AND I will be forced to fund the liberal media! * A 5% tax on consumer electronics (like the iPad) * Possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion “Citizenship Media Fund”
