From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am completely against any more taxes being imposed on the American people to further the agendas of ANY group or organizations, especially corporations and ideological/political organizations. The reason the "mainstream media" is failing is due to their own behavior and from them being completely out of touch of the American people. Organizations like Fox News and talk radio are doing perfectly fine providing truthful information to American's and don't require regulation or taxation to keep them afloat, unlike the others such as MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, etc. Due to those other organizations' biased reporting of news and political inclinations they are suffering the consequences. You can not be completely biased in news and not have the truth eventually force you out of the market. They don't deserve my tax money and they definitely don't deserve political assistance to force competing opinions out, nor is it ethical or morally correct for you to interfere in the market like this. And We the People won't tollerate any more taxation, especially to limit free speach and our right to have the truth be known. Thank you for considering my comments. I DO NOT support any effort by your group to impose any more taxes to help out the mainstream media or to re-invent ANYTHING. It is not your place to do so, it's the market that does that. Thank you, Jason Melvin
