From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The FTC plan for the “Reinvention of Journalism” outlines a series of taxes that would stifle free speech. This document, combined with the FCC’s moves to impose a “Fairness Doctrine”, poses an ominous threat to conservative speech. It is an extensive attempt by the Obama Administration to seize control of the press by controlling the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents-specifically those of us who hold conservative views. I emphatically say “NO!” to these efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech!
