From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please ignore and refute any efforts to reinvent journalism whether it be written, spoken or on the internet. Journalism has died of its own actions - mainly reporting its own agendas and opinions rather than the news - and it deserves to die. Censoring and/or taxing free speech is not helping our country. It only hurts it and goes against the 1st Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. If any media cannot sustain itself on its own merits and by its own consumers, it should die. There shouldn't be government intervention of any kind except to regulate filth. Please do not support efforts to tax conservative speech and then use our tax dollars to both train and pay the salaries of the liberal media! We, nor the FTC, cannot allow censorship, stifled rules of speech, new "training" or taxation of conservative free speech.
