From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please do not tax forms of communication or start a government journalism division. I don't need to pay for salaries of journalists who work for companies that can't stay in business on their own. I'm sorry that they might lose their jobs, but unfortunitely thats life. If I lose my job, no one is going to bail me out and no one should. If newspapers and other news organizations can't make it then they need to change so they can or just close. Times change and they need to change with them. These taxes would not help them, they would hurt other companies and mostly consumers who would no longer be able purchase these products because of the high (and unfair) tax rate on just those items.
