From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Gentlemen/Ladies: I have no problem with a conference to discuss problems with the future of jounnalism and changes that need to be made because of the fast tract movement of today's communication methods. However, I am very disturbed with some of the things you are proposing,such as, limiting talk shows, taxing certain types of comunication and slanting your proposals against conservative methods of comminication. From what I have learned you are turning this project over to the Obama administration and that is a bad bad move. He has worked tiresly since he became president to choke off and limit consertive voice. It is obvious he has sold out to the liberal media and in a free country neither side should be given an advantage. It is not secret there is a lot of pay back going on with most everything he proposes. The election is moving on toward two years ago and you would think all his pay back would be over by now but not so!! It is obvious it continues. All his "fairness doctorine" work is to stop conservatives and shut down anything that is conservative that is on radio or tv. I am very much against any consideration of bring up "fairness doctorine" proposals for discussion and voting. Also, applying taxing to communications and policy is very one sided. Your organization should be the first to make proposals fair to all citizens but I am not seeing that. Freedom in America is loosing ground at a fast rate with this administration. Your organization should be working to stop this loss. What you are proposing for discussion is a move in the wrong direction Signed, Donald H. Boiter
