Free speech must be kept free. Taxes have a chilling effect on our 1st Amendment rights. Newspapers are failing because of (1) changing technology and (2) increased bias and leaving out pertinent information. Liberals and conservatives alike have the right to report and express their findings unfettered and unencumbered by cumbersome taxes and restrictions. We simply cannot allow any step, no matter how small, towards a government-controlled media. It is too dangerous. Thank you.
