From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am opposed to efforts which restrain free speech and tax those who exercise their constitutional right to express opinions. I may not agree with those opinions but they have the right to express them. Journalism in any form should not be subsidized. It is a business and should survive on its own. There are many examples of successful journalists, commentators etc. who survive with very fine salaries. I believe you should leave the media alone to sink or swim on their own. Change channels, change stations or read a different article if you don't like what is being said or written.
