From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
The day the government begins to levy TAXES to fund the efforts of the media is the day we no longer have a FREE press. It will be a government sponsored entity and therefore obligated to print NOTHING that is not sanctioned by the Congress and the President. [Redacted]; if the government funds the media, those few media sources that are not liberal panderers of half truths and full out lies, will be squashed under the thumb of censorship of the liberals and the FREE PRESS will have died an ignoble death. This taxpayer will not stand for yet another FREEDOM being demolished by the liberals in this country - NO TAXES TO FUND THE MEDIA! LET THE MEDIA FIGURE OUT WHAT THEIR PLACE IS IN THIS INTERNET AGE AND DO IT OUT OF THEIR OWN POCKETS, NOT THE POCKETS OF THE TAXPAYERS!!!!
