From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Stop trying to control what we hear on ANY of the various kinds of media! If a company is going broke because we don't want to read what they publish, then let them. If they want to sell more papers, they can change their policies. The nonsense of taxing other media outlets to pay for the ineptness of a news outlet is simply another tax on us, AND a way of controlling us! STOP IT! For instance: If I don't want to go to a certain restaurant because I don't like their food, I also don't want to pay a "tax" to support that restaurant. I DON"T like their FOOD and should not have to pay them for their bad food. I also think that the other restaurants should have to pay any taxes to support that restaurant's bad food.
