From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I have a real problem with anything titled "Citizenship Media Fund" - it smacks Orwellian or Hitlerian to me. And I have a problem with the government funding anyone's education as a journalist. There would be a built-in stance of loyalty by the receiver to the giver. Therefore, I ask you to reject the Reinvention of Journalism report, its suggestions, and absolutely anything to do with it. Understand, I have been looking for this sort of thing to arise. It fits into the overall attempt by the Obama cadre to federalize all aspects of our society and culture. I sincerely hope you can "look down the road" and see what this sort of thing would yield if implemented.
