From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing to the FTC today to strongly oppose any attempt at a government takeover of the media. The so called Fairness Doctrine or Net Neutrality or whatever name you give it is simply a way to stifle free speech and the free press. These proposals are the opposite of what the founding fathers intended. Our country is now in the middle of a struggle for its very survival. The current administration has orchestrated massive power grabs aimed at turning the United States into a socialist nation. One of the first things socialist leaders usually do is to take over the media, thus controlling what people hear and read. I find this disgusting and evil. The citizens of this country will NOT stand for this.
