From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
When I hear about methods the federal government is using to sttempt to stifle free speech, or take away other freedoms I can't believe this is the USA, where I've lived all my life. Are we so far down the road to being slaves of the government? Are we still a republic? A democratic country? It looks like communism, socialism, a dictatorship. How can you dare to even comtemplate such an assault on the American people. What kind of news is it if it has to be filtered through appropriate government channels before we hear it. You can't even imagine how furious this makes me.
