From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
It is yet another takeover of our individual freedoms for the FTC to consider taxing online news organizations. Where is the constitutionality of this provision? I also do not feel that the government should be involved in any type of Americorp Journalism school - that's what colleges are for. We also should not be paying for journalists salaries - that's what the free market is for. If traditional media is having a difficult time - it just might be due to the fact that their message is clearly one-sided and no longer news.
