From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The “Reinvention of Journalism” is wrong and you KNOW it! You have NO right to impinge on the free speech of select groups. NO! NO! NO! I refuse to stand by and rollover while you try to violate my 1st Amendment rights. This will not stand; we will fight. I will not tolerate a tax to pay for the indoctrination (oops - I mean "training") of next batch of liberal journalists. They can go to college and pay their way just like everybody else. No Bailout funds to help pay journalist salaries. It's just like anything else - if you aren't worth your salt, then you find something else to do; nobody should be forced to buy your trash. NO ADDITIONAL TAXES PERIOD WHATSOEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you NOT heard Americans? I thought that you were an INDEPENDENT agency whose principal mission is the promotion of "consumer protection" and the elimination and prevention of what regulators perceive to be "anticompetitive" business practices. This act is the exact OPPOSITE of your mission. You're proving to be just another puppet agency to Obama and not to the AMERICAN PEOPLE whom you are supposed to SERVE! Get ready to feel some major heat if you choose to continue down this path; it will NOT be tolerated!
