From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I respectfully ask that the proposed "Reinvention of Journalism" be scrapped as it would give the government control over the press. It would impose a series of taxes aimed at purveyors of conservative thought which I strongly oppose. Our constitution gives us the right to free speech. Will you go after the pornographers also? The FTC should be our first line of defense to protect freedom of speech.
