From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The proposed "Reinventing Journalism" including a "Drudge Tax" and other proposals to control the future of journalism are inappropriate and counter the the First Amendment and freedom of the press. I vigorously oppose this attempt to stifle the press and to take control of journalism by the government. I advise the defeat of any such attempt to control the press.
