From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
FTC, I consider any attempt to try and control free speech via the internet, Cable Tv like FOX News, CNN, Msnbc or talk radio(conservative or liberal) a violation of the First Amendment and my right as a American to listen to what I want to, when I want to and who I want to listen to like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mike Broomhead and Barry Young (local, KFYI)and Thom Hartman, Randy Rhodes. I do not want this country to be like the Soviet Union (USSR), Cuba, North Korea, China, Venezuala, Iran where the Goverment controls what is news (what the Govt thinks is news usually what the ruling power wants you to hear and see and think, what can be said (which is usually what the Govt wants you to say which usually means you CAN NOT SPEAK OUT AGAINST IT AND ITS POLICY'S), ETC. This country stands for the free flow of ideas whether it's Conservative or Liberal or middle of the road.We are very fortunate to be able to do what we want, when we want to and listen to what we want to in this country. DO NOT DO ANY THING TO FOIL THESE FREEDOMS WE HAVE. WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CANNOT TOLERATE THOSE ATTEMPTS TO CURTAIL OUR FREE SPEECH RIGHTS under the US CONSTITUTION.
