From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I oppose the FTC's Fairness Doctrine as it violates Free Speech as Amended by the Constitution. I oppose the listed taxes as they stifle an already fragile economy by suppressing technological spending and limiting those at lower incomes from internet access. I oppose the creation of government journalists. The journalists in the US are struggling to make a living due to internet available news media eliminating 400 newspapers in 2009 alone.
