From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I read with deep concern your proposal to reinvent journalism. Reform mainstream journalism from its tendency to misinform the American people would be a more appropriate proposal. Will the efforts to tax the American people to death never cease. I thought all speech was supposed to be "free" from interference and taxation. Absolutely NO taxpayer monies should be used to subsidize commercial journalistic media of any kind. I condemn any action that would in any way silence or punish any particular form of political debate or discourse. To paraphrase one of our wise founders, the government that governs least, governs best. And, if its not broke, don't mess with it.
