From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The message is, "The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has issued a 47-page bureaucratic plan for the “Reinvention of Journalism” that outlines a series of taxes that would stifle free speech and silence conservatives." We are absolutely opposed to this sort of, "getting around congress" taxation. We are already taxed to the hilt, sometimes my phone bill has more tax than phone calls. Each feature I add to my phone is taxed seperatly. We're Taxed Enough Already! Any form of stifling Free Speech be it taxing, Fairness Doctrine or any other underhanded trick is a violation of our First Amendment Constitutional Rights and the real American people will not put up with it.
