From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
What is the need for the "Reinvention of Jounalism"? This walks periously close to countries where everything written and broadcast is government controlled. Our Founding Fathers would "revolt" at this idea. Additionally, why should I help pay the salaries of journalist? They are not federal employees, are they?? They work in the private sector where they are FREE to report events in this country. Besides, just how much taxing can the American individual handle. We are not a bottomless pit of money!! We certainly don't need additonal taxation. The federal government must rein in its uncontrolled spending. Shame on the FTC for even contemplating these suggested changes.
