From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It is being reported by The Media Research Center that the FTC is proposing a "Reinvention of Journalism" scheme to stifle free speech, and impose new taxes to pay for a journalism division of Americorps, in ordre to "train" future (liberal) journalists. You, who are supposed to guard our constitutional right to free speech and press should be ashamed. Please note that I am fully opposed to this scheme. Further, I fully oppose re-instatement of the "fairness doctrine" which seeks to stifle free speech in radio and television.
