I am opposed to the 47 page document that you are considering that would limit free speech by applying taxes to media such as the Drudge Report & would create a journalism division of the Americorps. Free speech needs to be strictly guarded. Even though there is alot of junk out there that I don't like, I do not want government controls that would intrude on citizen's free speech. Please stop attempting to attack free speech just because you are opposed to the policies of some of the news. This is a capitalist country still and I want it to stay that way. Thank you.
