From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Please be so kind as to issue a public response explaining where the authority for any part of any government, city, county, parish, state or federal, is given the authority to influence the press in any way shape or form save possibly issues of national security. There is no authority for the president to establish an agency part to train journalists. In fact it seems the administration is already far too adept at controlling the message through existing public media. It is time for the FTC & FCC to let the media markets operate. Those who agree with leftist, Marxist agendas are free to support same through their advertising and as listeners, the same as conservative media does. It is not the government's job to 'level the playing field'. If the people cared to hear leftist, liberal lies such programing would be at the top of the ratings instead of the conservative voices that are.
