From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The FTC's recent plan for the "Reinvention of Journalism" would stifle free speech. By implementing taxes, as suggested therein, the administration is attempting to seize control of the press, and thus extinguish any opposing views. Our constitution guarantees freedom of speech without the burden of taxation or regulation by an adversarial administration. The Obama administration must not be empowered to control the dissemination of information, while imposing taxes on idealogical opponents. I am saying NO to Obama's efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! I trust you are wise enough to see the dangerous road this is leading us down! May freedom of speech continue!
