From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am absolutely opposed to any FTC attempts to hamper our First Admendment rights by imposing cell phone, tv, and internet taxes to bailout newspapers or fund journalists. Any journalist who accepts government funding surrenders any objective credibility. I wouldn't pay 2 cents for any government funded news sources. As far as I'm concerned, they're administration mouthpieces. Why should I be forced to fund Pravda? What's next from this administration? Are you going to resurrect the Pony Express? Don't you guys get it? You're like the ugly little control freaks out of an Ayn Rand novel. Capitalism involves winners and losers. How many dinosaurs are we constantly forced to bailout? Sorry, I don't buy it.
