From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The FTC should not be looking for ways to tax other businesses or the sale of other items to fund journalism. Most traditional newspapers have strayed away from reporting on the news to commenting on the news and their "comments" have not been something people want to read. Every business, whether it is banks, automotive, or journalists, should survive or falter on their own merits and not rely on the American taxpayer to keep them in business.
