I simply must say “NO!” to the following because it undermines the intent of the Declaration of Independance and the Constitution of the United States. We do not want to become like the nations who control media for political purposes. * A “Drudge Tax” on news aggregators like The Drudge Report who stand on the front lines of the struggle to expose the Leftist agenda. * A “journalism division” of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! * A direct Journalism Bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist” * A 5% tax on consumer electronics * Possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion “Citizenship Media Fund”
