From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I'm very concerned about the government having anything to do with journalism. It seems to me that the first thing a dictatorship does is take control of the media. This can be done by force and by taxation. Any effort to control the media is taking away our freedom of speach. There are many things on the internet and media that I do not approve of, but today I have the right to not listen to them. I'm afraid of what might happen in the future.
