I oppose any attempt by the FTC to use tax payer money to fund AmeriCorp Journalistic endevors. I also oppose any effort by the FTC that would benefit news outlets that lein one way politically and/or penalize news outlets that lien one way politically. It is not the FTC's role to determine what speach is allowable or to tax speach. Taxation of speech by definition no longer makes it "Free" of government influence. Such behavior by any governement entity is unconstitutional in the most obvious and blatant terms.
