From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
As an extremely concerned citizen who greatly values the ability to have access to the truth through varied media, especially to what may be considered conservative programming, I urge you to abandon any plans to in any way control other than liberal forms of speech, which would simply serve to suppress information that allows the populace to make informed decisions. Creating a program under the auspices of AmeriCorps will only advance the idea that the FTC is bent on liberalizing all media and stifling conservative voices, eventually from all forms of media. It would greatly harm our country and its peoples to have journalists have their schooling paid for by taxpayers and then, furthermore, be trained/indoctrinated with only liberal philosophy. Please consider than there are those of us who listen to both side now but have values and ethics that are conservative and will continue to value truth that is NOT RELATIVE BUT THAT IS TRUE.
