From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I have read the report associated with this workshop. I must say I am disgusted, the word "tax" is mentioned 95 times in 47 pages. The paper listed five possible new taxes to pay for a “Citizenship Media Fund.” Those include a $4 billion tax on consumer electronics like your TV or iPod; a $5-6 billion advertising tax; and a tax on both ISP and cell phone bills. All this is about is stifling conservative free speech and propping up this administrations left wing agenda through its left wing media outlets that are failing miserably. Maybe you people should start asking yourselves this question. Why are they failing? The answer is, because nobody wants to listen to that garbage anymore. You people are making the assumption that everyone is stupid and will just sit there and listen to all that crap and just become a bunch of serfs. There are millions of patriots in this country who are willing to give their lives in defense of our Constitution. I hope the FTC, FCC and the rest of the scumbags in DC are willing to do the same in defense of their agenda.
