From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am completely against the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" and any form of taxation on internet bloggers,and communication devices. Any such tax is clearly a play to limit free speech and open communications between citizens. I find it appalling that taxpayer money would be used to train Journalists through the AmeriCorps program, when Journalism is most definitely a career that requires a four year degree and a mind trained for critical thought and objectivity, and is not something to be taken lightly or trained for through AmeriCorps.
