From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
This new FTC document,"Reinvention of Journalism", combined with the FCC’s moves to impose a “Fairness Doctrine” pose an ominous threat to free speech that would empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. The Constitution, our Founding Fathers, and I say “NO!” to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! The FTC wants to tax conservative speech and then use our tax dollars to both train and pay the salaries of the liberal media! That plays favorites with speech. Free Speech is only possible in media venues that are unregulated, untaxed, un-hindered by government, and are in a supply-and-demand free market.
