From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Dear Sirs, I respectfully request that you drop the new program you are suggesting. There is absolutely no reason to change present policies. News organizations that are truly covering the news and telling the American citizens the truth about what is going on in this country and our world are not failing, but indeed are prospering greatly. If news organizations, radio, and TV programs are failing, it is due to either mismanagement, failing to educate our citizens about both sides of the story, or more likely both. If they wish to continue and fail, let them fail. There will always be someone else who will pick up the failed pieces and make a success of it. The American taxpayer should not have to pay a tax for the education of reporters etc. and certainly cannot support any more taxes at this point. Thank You for yor listening to me. God Bless Clarence Dalrymple
