From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Our founders believed in limited government and the free market. This is the foundation of our country. The federal government has no business trying to control the press or any type of free speech. Reinventing journalism is absurd! For the FTC to consider taxing consumer products or taxing radio stations is outrageous! The internet provides for the free flow of information to consumers so there is absolutely no reason for the government to be involved in the internet. Let the free market work! No business is too big to fail! Government control destroys free enterprise. There is a demand for Fox TV and conservative talk radio which is why they are so successful...leave them alone! Stay out of the private sector!
