From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am opposed to the U.S. government having any hand in supporting journalism. A tax to fund journalism is an atrocious affront to the constitution and the first amendment. It is not possible for the government to fund something without also having a hand in controlling it. Please consider this as you discuss the future of journalism. Journalism will survive, but it will have to adapt and change to the challenges the internet poses, just like all other business have had to do - on their own.
