From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am disturbed by the latest attempt to corral free journalism. I do not approve of the agenda to use tax dollars to train journalists or the taxing of journalist websites. Drudge has every right moveon.org has and should not be taxed for being a wide media source for the public. Using tax dollars to pay americorp journalists is dangerous as any one party can manipulate with money. You know it's true and journalists are people like you and I, who aren't above the fray and can be manipulated with money. Please let journalists use their passion and sense of fairness to provide both sides of the story according to their own convictions, not government funding.
