From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am strongly against this type of government takeover of a basic Constitutionally guaranteed citizen right. This is being done under the guise of “Reinvention of Journalism”. What is broken with journalism that needs to be "reinvented" by a government agency? This a thinly disguised effort to insert government control into talk radio, cable news, and to recruit more liberal journalists to minimize the conservative voices that have thrived in the free enterprise market. Also, this is a new Obama tax vehicle to accrue another pot of money to dole out to his left wing agenda programs. This action should be stopped immediately and government employees need to focus on their jobs and work hard for the tax payer instead of creating more tax and spend government regulations.
