From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The 47-page bureaucratic plan for the “Reinvention of Journalism” outlines a series of taxes that would stifle free speech. It is part of “an extensive attempt by the Obama Administration to seize control of the press.” This is another outrageous threat to the freedom of speech and another attempt to impose the "Fairness Doctrine." The "Fairness Doctrine" has nothing to do with "fairness." This “Fairness Doctrine” is an ominous threat to conservative speech that would empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. We simply must say “NO!” to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax, and control our free speech!
