From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
We are outraged by the FDA's proposal to discriminate against freedom of speech by proposing to tax news aggregators such as the Drudge Report and other similar conservative programs. Such action, as proposed in the FDA's 47 page document coupled with the Fairness Doctrine, to be considered at the June 15th meeting, is a violation of the first amendment of the Constitution. You have no right to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech. The American people will not tolerate this.
