From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am a semi retired executive. I am extremely concerned about efforts to stifle jornalism under "reinventing journalism". I have never seen so many diverse people in my community [liberal, conservative, and independent] so alarmed and outraged about muzzling the Inet, Talk radio, Opinion television. Right now we feel it is the only thing that gets the truth out. Conventional media [ Broadcast TV, Newspapers etc] have abdicated their authority by allowing their prejudices to influence the integrity of the reporting. If there was ever a time when the TRUTH needs to be in front of the voters, it is now. Stand tall. Do not be like the other Governmental hacks. Protect our rights to hear the truth. You have 200 Million voters who are on to the Wash DC Lie/Shuffle dance. John C
