From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am writing in regard to the hearings being held on the "future of journalism". I urge the Commission to reject any and all plans to get government involved in supporting and/or bailing out the media. Journalists should be completely free of government control and also, should never be subsidized by the government. That goes against all reason. As an educated, hard-working American citizen and taxpayer, I am apalled by the prospect of being taxed to support the media! Let the free market work and stop taxing our citizens in order to support this type of agenda. Mrs. K. Kulp
