From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The government has no business getting into the business of journalism. The effort to reinvent journalism through government intervention is anti-American and anti-free enterprise. This effort is an attack on free speech and nothing more than a power grab by government. The FTC only wants to raise more of our taxes and steal our freedom. It's an abombination to use our hard earned tax dollars to bail out failing media and pay for journalists. It's even worse to fund a division of Americorp to train biased journalists in the agenda of big government. I am adamantly opposed to the FTC's efforts to take over journalism through increased taxes, more regulations and fake concern. Stop this nonsense and get out of our lives and stop trying to steal more of our freedoms.
