From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The plan for the Reinvention of Journalism, combined with the FCC’s moves to impose a “Fairness Doctrine”, pose an ominous threat to free speech that would empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. I say “NO!” to any efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! Journalism should be free to succeed or fail without government intervention. Let the Market decide what it wants in information, not the government.
