I do not support this ridiculous effort. It is not the federal governments position to support any media whatsoever. If a media outlet cannot survive on it's own in a free market economy, the taxpayers should not have to support it. Why did the major media outlets not see the growth of technology? Should I support their shortsightedness? Of course not!!! Furthermore, it puts the federal government in the position of who gets support and who doesn't. I strongly urge the FTC to kill all of these proposals. The FTC already levies hidden taxes on the consumer. We don't need more. Thank you, Billy V. Smith
