From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
If the leftist press can't survive in an open market, that tells you that people aren't interesting in subsidizing misinformation. In the age of Anita Dunn bragging that the Bammer Administration controls the media, it seems that what is needed is for government to get it's subversive nose out of journalism, not pretend to be an agent of free speech. President Soetoro's hand picking of subserviant "journalists" for his "news conferences" is contaminatory enough. The last thing we need is something like government licensing of journalists, obstensively to give the impression that they are reliable sources of information, but actually detracting from their credibility. Equally absurd is the so-called "fairness doctrine" to try to push liberal garbage on the populace which people don't want to hear - please note the failure of Soros' pathetic Radio America. With talk radio, people want intelligent conversation, not unsupported derision, name calling, and hype. If people want the latter, they need only switch on MSNBC or any of the other major networks. Thank you.
