From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The first thing I want you to read is this Amendment to the U.S Constitution: Amendment 1 - Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. Congress makes laws, the FTC does not. If Congress is prohibited from abridging our freedom of speech, without violation the First Amendment, how does the FTC proipose to legally restrict the citizens of the U S from speaking, writing, expressing our rights in print or electronic media? The FTC has been given the right to censure Decency in the media, which is important for our Family values. The FTC has not been granted any other Censure license since that would and will infringe on our Free speech rights. If you consider passing any restrictive regulations, they will be challenged in court. So stop now and do not cost the U S CITIZENS the dollars you would need from us to defend yourself from us for passing non-Constitutional regulations. If the Constitution does not give you the power, you do not have that power. We will defend the Constitution. Sincerely, William Molitor
