From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I understand journalism isn't what it used to be, but that does NOT warrant the need for government control of the media. When I say government control, I mean putting taxes on consumer products to fund the media (the liberal media in particular) and to silence or at least restrict the conservative and Christian media. It is no secret that President Obama is not happy with the conservative media (I.e. Fox News, Glenn Beck, etc...)and wants them silenced. It is absolutely unfair for people who don't agree with the Obama Administration's or any other liberal agendas to be forced to fund such ideals. This is supposed to be a free country and the more we let things like this go unopposed, the less real freedom we will have.
