From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I DO NOT believe that the Internet should be regulated or TAXED! This is a blatant violation of FREE SPEECH and the Fairness Doctrine belongs where the Supreme Court said it does in the garbage. I am sick of this administration trying to take over every business in America and apparently now British business. This is ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS to even SUGGEST that the American taxpayer should "bailout" the newspaper and printed press. Your efforts to control talk radio and conservative web-sites is not only suppression of free speech it is blatantly communistic! The Founding Fathers DEFINATELY did NOT think the government should control the news or media!!! Now, they even want us to pay for them to train and subsidize the "new media" and journalists THEY train. Pretty much sounds like U.S.S.R., China, and just the latest Chavez in Venezuela. THESE are the people we WANT to emulate!!!? Get real F.C.C. and wake up, this is Socialism at it's best and down right Communism. !!! DO NOT enact these programs!! I can't believe you all would even consider such a ludicrous plan. JUST SAY NO!! I do not think I should fund private business OR a GOVERNMENT TAKE OVER OF THE MEDIA!! JUST SAY NO!!!!!!! EXPECTING YOUR SUPPORT! Jane Winters
