From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
"Reinventing Journalism" is just a thinly veiled power grab advocating censorship. This is in direct violation of the bill of rights and is a shameful effort to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! We do not want our tax dollars going to support journalists who cannot support themselves with their work. We DO want a wide variety of opinion aired in the public arena. We do not want a 5% tax on consumer electronics (like the iPad) nor do we want possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion “Citizenship Media Fund.” We oppose this in every way.
