From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I am strongly opposed to any FTC decisions that would require government or taxpayer funding for any media support or journalistic efforts. I myself, as well as the majority of Americans, have become painfully aware of the extreme bias of the liberal media in all areas of reporting for the past several years. This "lovefest" has become sickening of late since the foolish election of Obama, a man of questionable American loyalties himself, and who the liberal media seems to find flawless. The conservative voice of this country, who I maintain presents the beliefs of the majority of Americans, is in danger of being silenced by their liberal peers using hook or crook and seemingly with the blessing if not the outright direct assistance of the extremely liberal setting administration. Any program or decision on the part of the FTC must assure that the expression of all ideas and points of view be freely voiced without censorship of restraint. Let the ideas and points of view of both camps stand on their own merits, fairly and accurately reported by a unbaised media. Freedom of the press does not mean only that portion of the press that happens to favor or support current or planned government programs and initiatives.
