From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please! There is no place in journalism for the FTC. A free America cannot stand if the media is controlled by the government. I do not want to pay the salary of any journalist through my taxes. Freedom of speech is a cornerstone of American life and if you muzzle the press by bribing, intimidating or "training" then you take away that freedom. The FTC needs to stay out of journalism of all kinds. We are taxed - in fact overtaxed, on all sides! This is government takeover of the media and control of the content of all media. To put it more simply...we are not Venezuela. This is the United States of America and we do not need the FTC involved in journalism at any level.
