From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing concerning the "Reinvention of Journalism" proposal. I realize the recommendation document is "solely for the purposes of discussion," but it is not the place of the government to control or even influence the American media. Should the government obtain such power, abuse would certainly follow as views negative of the administration could be suppressed and favoring views could be promoted. Furthermore, any government bailout of the journalism industry would pave the way for such control. I am, therefore, adamantly opposed to any government intervention or control over the American media.
