From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The FTC must realize that all efforts to curtail, control, restrict, hamper or otherwise attempt to or appear to censor, tax and/or impose punitive measures on legal entities engaged in the legal dissemination of news will appear as the current administration's continuing efforts to curtail, control, restrict, hamper and otherwise interfere with Freedom of the Press. A most un-American enterprise, and typical of the current administration's left wing mindset. Concern over journalism's future is misplaced. Journalists should be more concerned with gaining back reader's confidence in their reportage thus earning the respect almost entirely lost by the "main stream media" as it became the mouthpiece for left wing goals. If the MSM is suffering from business failure, it is a well deserved outcome, but surely reverseable if fairness and balance returns to their business model.
