From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
We are in total disagreement with the attempt by FTC to interfere with the internet, and other forms of communication. The idea to support newspapers and journalism and journalists with TAX dollars is ludicrous, unconstitutional, and above and beyond the scope of government. Newspapers, radio stations, TV stations and other forms of communication such as the internet, are privately owned endeavors. Government control is unconstitutional in the United States. We are not a Communist country, YET! This type of government grab is one more step toward a Communist State. We are opposed to this type of control and we are not alone. I don't know any thinking American who would be in agreement with any more government takeover of private enterprise in this country.
