From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
With as much emphasis as possible I ask you to resist the temptation of controlling free speech by taxing certain news channels and subsidizing others. It is a very dangerous step toward tyranny. I risked my life to escape a ruthless tyrannical communist government that would plot and carry out exactly these types of underhanded, shameless actions. Allow me to warn you: You are playing with fire! The monster you are creating will devour you, the ones who created it, first. Learn from what happened to the communist dictators in Europe. Just read the many books about the Soviet Union to see what's coming. The purges and cleansings of the very ones that started it will come before you know it. Stop before it's too late. RIGHT NOW!!!!!! Uphold the Constitution! It works better than anything you can devise.
