From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I do not support paying for journalists or limiting the way information is sent out. This is just another way to limit free speech. If a journalists is any good, they will find a job. I am tired of the socialist hand outs that you are trying to do. Stop and think about the first Amendment which says, we have Freedom of Speech. That also includes all sources of written, or oral, or any other form of communication. I am quite happy to have the ability to make a decision as to what I chose to listen to. I don't want you to limit my choices. When business is down, you either reduce staff if you are an employer and if an individual, you may have to find another line of work, just like the rest of us have had to do. Stop the insanity. I didn't know it was the FTC's job to pay journalist. It seems like that is not in your job classification!
