From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Your 47-page proposal to "Support the Reinvention of Journalism" is simply a method to bypass a congressional vote and socialize the American news media. Your efforts, if implemented, are unconstitutional and violate the rights bestowed on Americans by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. This is nothing but a maneuver to bail out journalism and fund leftwing media by taxing Americans. Your paper mentions some form of the word "tax" 95 times in 47 pages. You have no right to inhibit/suppress freedom of the press; such action will have negative repercussions from the American people, rest assured.
