From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I find the proposed taxing of citizens and alternative media in order to fund liberal journalists and keep certain news media outlets which the public has been unwilling to support in increasing numbers disgusting. This is the height of arrogance and an attempt to control news media contrary to the Constitution, which used to be the controlling document in the operation of this country. What you are proposing is a direct violation of the freedom of speech, and taxation without representation and should immediately be dispensed to file 13. I am not an attorney nor a politician only a senior citizen discouraged and very upset over the direction of this country.
