From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Turn your back on your proposed outrageous proposals that are a clear assault on freedom of speech in this country. You cannot gloss over your proposals. They are outrageous! No amount of spin can hide what you are attempting to do and you should be ashamed of even proposing such things. This is a free nation with free speech. DO NOT mess with our rights! The Fairness Doctrine is simply a way to stifle free speech. Taxation to control free speech is an abomination also. Let people say what they want and leave us alone. It is the cornerstone of our freedom.....the freedom to speak our minds without fearing big government from sticking your big nose in our business. Stick to keeping profanity from the public airwaves. That is your job. Don't overstep your mandate. A pox on you for even proposing such outrageous limits on our freedoms of speech. God help us should the current crop of proposals come to pass.
