From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please don't "Reinvent Journalism". Unless congress votes for it imposing it would be just another usurpation of our rights and IS unconstitutional so the question should never be asked. NO STATE RUN MEDIA. You have another name for it? Stop trying to suppress the people. This would only add to Americas fear of encroaching tyranny. Have you people any idea what this could possibly do? These papers are failing for a reason.Stop interfering with our free market system. Can't you feel that you are losing the peoples consent to be governed by you anymore?Stop poking the public with a stick and be responsible about not adding kindling to the growing contempt for our government. PLEASE THINK OF THIS BEFORE YOU DO IT.I would hate to have to think we would have to start underground presses. Last time that happened we told the king to screw. THINK! IT'S YOUR JOB!This will go over about as big as national health care. What percentage of the American people do you think will see it your way rather than as an assault on their first amendment rights? PLEASE!
