From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Here's my proposal: keep your hands off the internet and don't add ANY new taxes anywhere. Let the free market do its work. Information is now more widespread than ever. The general public is more informed than ever. You don't need to change anything. Draconian printed papers might go out of business, but they will be replaced with better information sources and the public will remain informed. DON'T MEDDLE WITH THE FREE MARKET.
