From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am taking a stand against efforts to censor, limit, tax or restrain free speech in my beloved United States. I am asking you to NOT go through with your plans to "reinvent journalism." It may need some "minor" adjustments, but this plan is not the way to go about it!! I DO NOT want the Obama Administration (or ANYONE ELSE) to seize control of America's free press. I DO NOT want the creation of a journalism division of AmeriCorps -- which will force taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of journalists! I DO NOT want a direct journalism bailout fund to “help pay the salary of every journalist.” NO! NO! NO! Respectfully, Tim, U.S. Navy Veteran
