From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing to oppose the ideas of a "Drudge Tax." This and other ideas like the "Fairness Doctrine" are all an attempt at a government takeover of free speech and journalism, which is strictly forbidden in the Constitution. People will read and listen to whichever form of journalism they choose, and it is not the government's place to tell how to gather our information. That is NOT America, but smacks more of communist and fascist regimes.
