From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Who are you people that you think you have the right to decide who does or doesn't have the right to free speech in this country? News flash ladies and gentlemen you don't have the right to decide this issue. In addition, internet is not yours to control. Journalism will survive and thrive the way any other business survives; by finding a customer for their product. The term journalist has been turned into a dirty word by those who have pedaled propagands instead of facts. That's why they no longer have the market share they once enjoyed. That being said, you have no right to expect the American people to "train" your journalists through AmeriCorp. Nor do you have the right to expect the American people to fund a bailout slush fund to pay the salaries of the same propagandist who made jounalism a dirty word.
