From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Your meeting is titled "From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?" There are no longer any town criers, because newspapers became a better way to receive information. Newspapers are fading because of radio and TV. Will newspapers become as outmoded as town criers? Perhaps. Or perhaps they will be relegated to local interests - sources of LOCAL news, targeted to specific communities or regions. America survived the passing of the 'town crier'; it will survive the downsizing of print media without any interference from the federal government. Thanks for your consideration.
