I have reviewed the FTC's 47 pg plan and I am 100% opposed to the changes it is suggesting. It appears to be just another way to tax the american people and at the same time stiffle free speech. No way should we be bailing out newspapers or other media outlets. If they cannot stay alive because no one is reading or listening to what they have to say, or technology has passed them by, then they don't deserve to stay in business and they should not be subsidised by us.
