From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Your “Reinvention of Journalism” proposal is yet another attempt to impose socialism of the USA. * We don’t need a “Drudge Tax” on news aggregators like The Drudge Report who stand on the front lines of the struggle to expose the Socialist agenda. * We don’t need a “journalism division” of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of journalists! * We absolutely don’t need a direct Journalism Bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist” * We don’t need new taxes like a 5% tax on consumer electronics (like the iPad) * We don’t need new taxes like possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion “Citizenship Media Fund”
