From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing to say "NO!" to the creation of a journalism division of AmeriCorps. That would amount to forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! Absolutely unacceptable! Free Speech requires a Free Press, not bought and paid for minions spreading propaganda! I am also writing to say "NO!" to any kind of direct journalism bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist.” That means you and I would be forced to fund the liberal media! Let the media rise or fall on their own merits! If no one will pay for their lies, distortions, and half-truths, let them go under! There are plenty of news sources available; the taxpayers will not stand for any more bailouts! Thank you,
