From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
To whom it concerns: I'm writing to let your commision know that I strongly oppose the notion and any germane legislation thereof, that publicly subsidizes private journalism organizations. As you know the first amendment of our constitution guarantees a free press; it does not compel taxpayers to fund such a press, particularly those whose political values they find abhorrent. Thank you.
