From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please stop your political attempts at controlling free speech. The First Amendment was written to defend political speech in particular, and it is now that type that the FTC is attempting to regulate and control via planned takeover of the internet. The internet is a symbol of our freedom and your Communist-style control of media amounts to filtering of political speech, thus reinforcing leftist propaganda. The moves by the Obama Administration to train journalists and the leftist organizations lobbying for Net Neutrality is so un-American it is scary. The commerce clause was intended to not prevent commerce between the states, not to regulate trade to stifle it, and this is what the FTC would be doing to try to "equalize" the playing field for liberal media that is suffering because of their message. Keep the free economy free, our press free, and the internet free.
