Sirs: The last time I looked, free speech is a part of the Bill of Rights. Yes, it costs money to run the media, but if you wish to tax the American people to help support them, that means that their speech is no longer "free", and regardless of our personal views, we must support all media outlets with our taxes. Please allow the media to survive based on their listeners' and advertisers' support, not our tax monies! Perhaps you have extra dollars for new taxes, but I, for one, do NOT! Thank you! Peter White
