From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am outraged that the FTC is attempting to silence conservative speech. This is nothing more than a plan for the government to prop up the liberal media, and I am disgusted by it. I am against the creation of the journalism division of AmeriCorps that would force taxpayers to pay for the Obama Administration to train the next generation of liberal journalists. What are you thinking? Whatever happened to free speech and the freedom to disagree? I love the freedom of the Internet and I love conservative sites like Fox News. I detest the spin of the liberal media. The liberal media needs to change, not the conservatives! In a free society, what is appreciated will increase and what is not appreciated or used will perish . . . like the liberal media. I am also against a direct journalism bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist.” I do NOT want a series of taxes that would only serve to stifle free speech and silence conservatives.
