I was horrified to find out that this wasn't a joke or an overreaction by the conservative media. You are actually recommending that the U.S. Government pick winners in the media business, by funding certain types of media outlets. Then to add insult to injury after you decide who the winners should be instead of the market (that would be the consumer), you tax that same consumer for your picks. So instead of paying for what I want, I pay for what the Govenment wants me to have. Does this sound like the United States. You are in the employ of the wrong country.
