From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Sirs. I have just become aware of the“Potential Policy Recommendations to Support the Reinvention of Journalism,”report and its goal of using taxes to support journalism courses and journalists salaries. This will be a gross violation of the freedom of the press amendment to the constitution. A huge conflict of interest is imposed by being paid by the Government and being responsible for reporting government activities both good and bad without predigest. I respectfully demand you reject this report and all of its irresponsible actions.
