From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Government has no right to interfere with our First Amendment right to free speech. I oppose any and all efforts by government to limit , censor or control content of news, talk radio or the internet or any new media. Journalists and newspapers need to sink or swim off their own backs. There should be NO BAILOUTS for journalists or newspapers. No taxpayer funding for journalists salaries or training beyond what is available for any citizen in any field of work. I oppose this sort of crony capitalism giving handouts and bailouts to favored groups. Market forces need to determine success or failure of any enterprise, including journalism and the newspapers of this country.
