From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
We the People DO NOT need to be taxed to pay the salaries of journalists! The government should not be entering into America's Free Enterprise! If Americans want to read/listen to these people, the ratings will create incomes and profits for their bosses/companies. If we chose NOT to listen to those who only present a baised slant on the news, then it will be reflected in the stations ratings and the journalists salaries. That is Free Enterprise! That is America. Our country is based on the Right to Free speech...not just liberal free speech approved by any one person or party. We have enough taxes. Why not CUT government spending and out-of-control growth? That is what we have to do in our own homes and businessess! Why should we make personal cutbacks only to have to give that money to the government for their own personal interests? No more taxes or we will vote each and every one of you out of office that supports these tax increases. We are already doing it. Continue with tax increases and watch the power of We the People! This is our hard earned money...not yours! This is OUR country! And, we will fight to keep our freedoms...ALL of them!
