From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I heard today of the plan for "Reinventing Journalism"; my first thought was "Are they KIDDING?". I'm appalled that such a pernicous effort is underway to undermine the sanctity of our First Amendment right's. Right's come from God, not the government; taxing those right's as a way to save failing newspapers is outrageous on so many levels. Should the buggy whip have been bailed out? Should the covered wagon? The traditional newspaper is a relic from a bygone era. I demand as a citizen of the United States of America that you "cease and desist" in your efforts to control speech; it will backfire if you don't.
