From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
What you are proposing is unlawful taxation and blatant CENSORSHIP of our God-given, unalienable rights of free speech, rights to life, liberty & property (pursuit of happiness). Show us what in our Organic Constitution gives you the idea that you can pull this one off and get away with it? Your 47-page bureaucratic plan for the 'Reinvention of Journalism' outlines a series of taxes that would stifle free speech and silence conservatives. This report contains the word 'tax' 95 times and is part of an extensive attempt by the Obama Administration to seize control of the press. These taxes include" * A 'Drudge Tax' on news aggregators like The Drudge Report who stand on the front lines of the struggle to expose the Leftist agenda. * A 'journalism division' of AmeriCorps -- forcing taxpayers to pay the Obama Administration to train up the next generation of liberal journalists! * A direct Journalism Bailout fund to 'help pay the salary of every journalist' -- WE, the everyday, hardworking American people will be forced to fund the liberal media! * A 5% tax on consumer electronics (like the iPad) * Possible taxes on cell phones, television and radio that would all be part of a massive $35 billion 'Citizenship Media Fund' Cease & desist or you will be upbraided and disbanded eventually through auspices of the restored Republic of the united States of America and our lawful representatives. Long live the Republic!
