From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please stop the usurpation of authority you are attempting to foist onto the American people. The FCC has no constitutional authority to regulate or "reinvent" journalism. Your intrusion into private markets for idealogical reasons will not be tolerated. If the "journalism" companies you plan to support with this scheme are unable to compete in the open market because they should follow those other bastions of capitolism like buggy whip makers. The citizens of the United States have no obligation to support these private enterprises. The government of the United States has no constitutional authority to compel this support. Cease and Desist your unlawful scheme.
