From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The 47 page publication "Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism" is in direct opposition to freedom of the press and freedom of speech. In no way should any of these taxes and ideas be put in place by the FTC. It sounds like the aim is to limit speech to that which is approved by the government and to tax those with conservative views. The American people in no way would support any of these new taxes and schemes. It is unbelievable that something like this is even being considered.
