From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am worried about the potential of the Government to abuse it's power with the latest FTC document. Punitive taxes may be applied to those publications which disagree with the president's agenda. Overall Free Speech must trump any government interest in promoting journalism, and journalists must be independent from the government and not under its influence.
