From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Some are questioning how journalism can survive and thrive in the future. Journalism like anything else must adapt as technology advances. And any attempt of the Government to either stop changes or control the necessary adaptations will only cause more problems. Therefore, the FTC or any other branch of Government should leave things develope on their own or we may end up "continuing to make buggy whips" supported with tax dollars way after the market has died.
