From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I oppose your efforts to control conservative speech. This new published FTC document, "Reinvention of Journalism", combined with your organization's moves to impose a “Fairness Doctrine” pose an ominous threat to conservative speech that would empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. American citizens say “NO!” to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! The sleeping giant known as patriotic, conservative Americans has been awakened, and we are paying attention (finally!). Please be on notice that we will fight these unconstitutional efforts to stifle free speech. Sincerely, C. Sperier
