From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The American people should no more be forced to support (through taxes) the views of people who are so open-minded that their brains have fallen out than we should be forced to support abortion (throught taxes). We do not need an entire generation of 'Helen Thomas's'. I believe it is the job of a journalist to report the news as it is and allowing the listeners/readers/viewers to decide for themselves what to think/do about a subject. I am absolutely against this proposal. The government has no business regulating journalism. Look what happened in Communist Russia and Nazi Germany. Or is that what you're planning?
