From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
What is clear is that this FTC plan is part of an extensive attempt by the Obama Administration to seize control of the press, including: The creation of a journalism division of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! A direct journalism bailout fund to help pay the salary of every journalist. That means the taxpayers would be forced to fund the liberal media! This flawed plan deserves to be attacked for the left wing political power grab that it is. Like most everything being hatched by the Obama administration, this too will prove to be unconstitutional. My advice is to discard this scheme to control the media while you still can.
