From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
As you discuss and try to decide "the future of journalism" its extremely important that you keep in mind the scope and limits of your role. It is not your business to better support and/or lower cost for journalism. Those in the journalism field are, or work for, free enterprise businesses. They either make it profitable for themselves or they go out of business. It is unacceptable for the FTC to censor or tax any conservative speech just because they are profitable and usually the progressive left leaning speech can't make it financially. That's because no one listens to these journalists/programs therefore no advertisers waste their money. Your main job is to keep the airways and all media free of obscene and vulger material. Thank you for reading my comments.
