From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
FTC Members, KEEP OUT OF THE FREE PRESS! IT IS NOT THE PLACE FOR GOVERNMENT TO SPONSOR OR BE INVOLVED WITH IN ANY WAY! JOURNALISM AND THE PRESS WILL CHANGE ON ITS OWN TO A FORMAT THAT IS GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE! UNLESS THE FEDERAL AND STATE GOVERNMENTS INTERFERE AND DESTROY THE FREE PRESS! If there was ever anything to keep the government INFLUENCE out of is JOURNALISM AND the "FREE PRESS" we don't need the government imposing the slightest hint of influence or sponsorship! The FREE PRESS will survive, but the FTC and the FEDERAL and STATE Governments need to stay out of it and let the press and journalism evolve on its own. It will, just as it did before! Please stay out of the way! Additionally, we certainly don't need any additional taxation to "pay" for some sort of government sponsored press. It will NOT be a FREE PRESS if you impose yourself in any way! Please, keep out of the PRESS!! Thank you BG
