From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Sirs, I would hate to think that this proposed conference was going to come up with ways to have the public support and pay "journalists" . If the main stream media is in trouble in most cases it is their own fault. One sided public stories and comments have of necessity been countered by a "balanced" view presented by cable and talk radio. How far are we going to go toward a government controlled media? Are the members of the FTC comfortable with that direction?
