From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
This meeting is absolutely unnecessary and un-Constitutional! The media is supposed to be part of the checks and balance system for our government. If you take away dissenting voices and force taxpayers to support only liberal and biased news sources, you're subverting that principal. True freedom of speech does NOT need any help from the FTC. It's time for the government to start listening to the people it's elected officials are supposed to represent. Stop looking for ways to shove new laws, taxes and restrictions down our collective throats! There's an old saying: 'There are two sides to every story'; not being able to hear both makes an intelligent, unbiased decision nearly impossible!
