From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The Federal Government should have NO role in "reinventing" journalism; it is a conflict of interest. It also sets a dangerous precedent that would usher in more invasive controls on how information is created and distributed. There should be no mandates, subsidies, or taxes to influence or alter how the FREE press conducts its business. I am very disturbed by this and other overreaching activities in which this administration is engaging.
