From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please reconsider your attempt to subsidize part of the media (the liberal, Obama-supporting part) and stamp out the rest of it (the Conservative part). The taxpayers have no business paying the salaries of the very people who are supposed to be reporting fairly and objectively on things related to those people. We also have no business being forced to pay to train "journalists". This is the very antithesis of the free market which has made this country to great! I am strongly opposed to ANY tax on any part of the media. Talk about violating our right to free speech!! You are supposed to be protecting that right, not being a party to curtailing it.
