From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It has come to my attention that the FTC is trying to “Reinvent Journalism” with an effort to censor and tax conservative speech and our free speech rights in general. Any kind of tax on or for journalism is absurd and the media needs to learn how to change with the times of internet and high technology that is so prevalent in these days. I still get my local newspaper and also keep updated with the internet news sites. To think that you might be considering the censoring of legitimate news sources is appalling. Please reconsider the consequences of any decisions that are made and encourage the fair - meaning BOTH sides of issues - reporting of the news and events going on in our world. Thank you!
