From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
When new technology passes an industry by, the government should not be there to prop up the dying dinosaur by proposals to better-support the costs of journalism. Such a bail-out would be a waste of tax-dollars & likely unconstitutional. I also oppose efforts to censor, limit, tax, or restrain free speech, things similar in effect to the "Fairness Doctrine". Government per the constitution has no business in the area of free-speech.
