From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I opposes the "Reinvention of Journalism" being suggested by the FTC, simply because it impinges on our first ammendment right of free speech, by allowing the federal Goverment to control free speech, through selective taxation and use of tax payer dollars to "brainwash" new "so-called" journalists into the mold of their choosing. I want "Journalism" to remain free of the bureaucratic hindrinces and control of the Federal Goverment. Journalists are to be the "Watch Dogs" of the Federal Goverment, not its puppets!
