From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing to let you know that I am firmly against any censorship of speech. Any proposal to tax speech is a limitation on that speech. Any subsidizing of the media will inevitably lead to government censorship of anyone who accepts funding. Have you not ever heard of the expression "don't bite the hand that feeds you". This is what is done in communist countries not in free countries. Journalism will do just fine without the helping hand of the government.
