From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
As an American, taxpaying citizen, I am completely opposed to the FTC's attempt to "Reinvent Journalism" and any other attempt by the FTC and the current Administration to censor, regulate, tax and control free speach in our great country. The FTC's 47-page proposal to "Reinvent Journalism" is nothing more than an unconstituational attempt to censor and tax conservative speach and free speach in general. It is not the purpose of the FTC and the federal government to "bail out journalism" through any proposal to "better-support and lower the cost of journalism." These efforts to censor, control, regulate and tax free speach are contrary to the foundation on which our Country was founded.
