From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
"Journalism" should survive based on merit, not as a result of taxpayer funded bailouts and programs aimed at government control of media. This FTC report suggests multiple taxes aimed at propping up a media message that the public clearly rejects. We do not need government controlled media in a democratic society. This effort is way to close to socialist government controlled news. This is anti-American and contrary to the spirit of the Constitution of this nation.
