From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Why does our government need to get involved with anything other than the protection of our right to free speech. TAX TAX TAX is that all you can think. The public does not want to fund any newspaper and definitely does not want the government to control the content of the news. We want less regulation - not more. If newspapers cannot survive its because of the message they send. They spin the news and outright lie in some cases as do the major news outlets. The public wants honesty, transparency and the truth. Obama has been the biggest dissapointment this country has ever seen. It's truly a shame that "he" had to be the first president of color. As MLK said so well: one should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.
