From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It is very important to us as citizens to have freedom of speech and freedom to hear different views on the news as well as accurate reporting. Taxing broadcasting will decrease the amount of accurate information from various sources. We as citizens should have the right to listen to who ever we choose to listen to or read. We need a broad range of sources of news from the little newspaper and radio station to the large sources so please don't limit what is available. One of the first things that happen in dictator countries is the controlling of the media and we do not want our country to become a dictatorship controlled by the government. We are a free country and we want to stay free of government control.
