From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The FTC proposal to tax internet news in an attempt to prop up other forms of media is outrageous. 1. Government funding of media creates a fairly obvious conflict of interest. You need look no further than NPR for evidence. 2. If newspapers want to survive they should improve their product, both in print and online, and actually deliver the news without whitewashing it for the good of this Administration. Thank you, Lindsay Moore
