From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Your plan for the “Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism,” lists taxes that will stifle free speech & silence conservatives. It appears to be part of an attempt by the Administration to control the press. The document poses a threat to conservative speech that would empower the Obama administration to control information dissemination & to impose punitive taxes on ideological opponents. I say “NO!” to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! It appears that the FTC wants to tax conservative speech & use the money to train & pay the salaries of liberal media! Our Constitution was meant to protect the People from actions of this sort: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.” Don't attempt to socialize our media!
