From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I can not believe that this type of censorship could even be thought of in the USA. Let alone as proposed legislation restricting the free speech and thought that this country was founded on. Communist Russia, nazi Germany, and Venzuala are the only counties that come to my mind that prohibit free speech, and they all failed or are failing. We have the right as citizens of the USA to talk about or critisize our government as given to us in our constitution. We have the power to change our government in the voting booth. But only if we have all of the information available to make the correct decision. I am glad that I am 83 years old and do not have to live under the proposed rules for very long. I also fought for this country to preserve the right of free speech. I fear my children and grandchildren will be living in a completely different country than I was born and raised in. Traditional values which made this country great are being trampled on in the interest of a goverment which can not stand critisism.
