From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
Leave the government OUT of journalism!!!! For the government to interfere in any way with journalism is an abomination to FREEDOM!!! Let the people CHOOSE to whom they will listen. So make no changes. DO NOT even CONSIDER a bailout for journalists! Any poitical opinion can use the internet. When you start trying to control it, it must be because your opinions cannot stand on their own. If you feel that you must silence the opposition, then there is a REAL threat to freedom. Make your arguements. Your voice will be accepted or rejected on its merits, not on tyranny and oppression.
