From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I understand Obama is looking to introduce legislation to put journalism under federal control. The excuse is that newspapers are losing money, that journalism of yesterday is not surviving. I say good riddance, since journalism has changed to indoctrinating the population in the most extreme political left view point, that Journalism has abandoned it's viewers, and just like other businesses that no longer serve their clientel, deserve to die off like the buggy whip indsutry of yesteryears. People just do not want to pay for getting lied to. There are plenty of new news outlets to inform the public. I realize of course that the employees at this organization are not in the least interested in complying with my request, and that the only way we the voters can avoid this imposition of another wasteful government institution, we need to vote Obama out, and then abolish the FTC entirely, since the entire agency is is just another waste of money
