From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Don't mess with our Constitution: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” Your “Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism,” is a 47-page terrifying bureaucratic plan to insinuate government into the very information that forms the basis for democracy. The document is coming on the heels of the government’s new $350-billion national broadband plan, this shows an extensive attempt by the Obama administration to seize control of the press. Also, the power to tax is the power to control. Dump this project - it is fraught with serious problems.
