From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Leave our free speech rights alone! Our First Amendment says that Congress is to make NO law infringing upon our freedom of speech! It is outrageous that this government and its cronies are trying to silence the voices of conservatives. Everyone, whether they are Democrats, Republicans, or Independents, should be alarmed at what this administration is trying to do. America already has a taxpayer-funded government broadcasting system--it's called PBS--and now they want to "super-charge" public broadcasting to the tune of an additional $35 BILLION per year. And tax our Ipods, computers, internet, and cell phones? The government has absolutely no right to any more involvement in the media. You already have the big TV outlets, most of the newspapers, you have Huffpo and George Soros, (who is spending billions to destroy our America). How dare you now attempt to prop up the failing entities by using more of our tax dollars. ALL viewpoints are already being heard in this country!! No group should receive any form of protectionism, favoritism, tax breaks, affirmative action, or any other government assistance, which by design, would limit and eventually squelch any other group. This chilling assault attempted against yet another one of OUR rights guaranteed by OUR CONSTITUTION cannot be allowed to continue.
