From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Free Speech was of HUGE IMPORTANCE to our Founding Fathers. America has prospered and become such a great nation because of our Constiution and the personal liberties that it affords her Citizens. The "fairness doctrine" is anything but fair, aimed at stifling free speech and letting the federal gov't decide "what is best" for us and what our local interests "should be". I resent having my tax dollars used to pay for a "Journalism Bailout fund", or any other bailout for that matter. Our Free Enterprise System should REWARD those businesses that are well managed, hard working and productive, while letting those that are mis-managed and not productive FAIL as a result. I request that the Federal Gov't keep it's greedy, controlling paws off of our CONSTITUTIONAL GUARANTEE of FREE SPEECH
