From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The First Amendment to the Constitution secures the freedom of speech and of the press. The FTC attempts to manipulate, regulate and tax the press and the internet violate the essence of these freedoms and are the earmarks of a totalitarian state. I urge the commission to abandon the policies it seeks to establish outlined in the 47 page report entitled "Reivention of Journalism".
