From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I oppose any attempt by the FTC to attempt to limit free speech by interfering with the internet. It also should not be considered to prop up traditional news media. Like any other business in America, they must put out a salable product in order to survive. The success of news outlets like Fox News proves that success is in the information you provide to the public. Given the financial status of this country, there is no money to prop up failing news outlets. Any attempts by the FTC to do so will likely result in future defunding of your organization.
