From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The "Fairness Doctrine" is a clear attack on our Freedom of Speech in the U.S. Your attempt to control the content of our airways with this drivel of equal airtime and government support of journalism at our expense by taxes is unacceptable. There's a reason the liberal press is failing---the market place has determined that no one is interested in listening to a failed ideology. This is a great example of why Americans are angry with the present administation--elimination of our basic rights and freedoms was NOT the change we voted for.....the govenment has absolutely no business spending tax payers money to support their views and/or supporting journalists friendly to their ideology. UNACCEPTABLE in all forms! Signed, Former Democrat, now independent voter--and I will vote!
