From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing to show my displeasure over the FCC move to impose a new "Fairness Doctrine" and a "Reinvention of Journalism" which outlines a series of taxes. I believe this would stifle free speech, hurt journalism and would provide a monopoly of news and information in the form of traditional journalism. I believe most traditional journalism is no longer directed at news but at liberal opinion. The last thing this country needs is more "taxes" and the word tax is used 95 times in this new plan.
