From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am opposed to your attempting to control and fund the news media. 1. A tax on news aggegators is a thinly disguised attack on freedom of speech to hurt conservative opinion and sources. Kill it. 2. A journalism school run by the government is nothing but a diploma mill for liberals. There are enough liberal journalists already. Taxpayer funded at that!! Kill it!! 3. Journalism bailout for every journalist?? Too many bailouts now. If they can't hack it without my taxes then let them find a better job. Kill it!! 4. No citizen media fund therefore no taxes needed to fund it. Kill it!! More and more I see signs of a government propaganda machine trying to be put in place by this administration and its liberal elites. Hell no!!
