From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
No, no, no, no!!!  The idea that we should save journalism as it is today is absurd !!! We never asked if the radio should be saved because of the advent of the television.  We realized that progress was paramount and propping up a failing industry that has lost touch with the people is absurd.  The next question is why is journalism  in trouble, the answer most certainly is the juggernauts of yesterday. Newspapers like the Washington post, New York times, and the LA times, also the big alphabet tv networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and what do all of those have in common?  They are all extremely biased against conservatives and therefore cannot or will not report the news in an unbiased manner or they will simply suppress it.  This is why they are failing because people know when they are being lied to and they want the truth, so they will not patronize prejudice lying companies that simply spew their lies and misinformation.  So unless you some how keep these so called journalists from lying and you can't so this attempt to pretend you are innocently going to"save" journalism is misguided and your intent is evident since your director is a partisan appointed by the current president.  Making you guilty of the same crime as the media your pretending to save. Never before in history have so many individuals been able to exercise their 1st amendment rights and have their voice actually heard.  No longer do the partisan talking heads controled by a minority of ultra biased ultra rich individuals soley control the information disseminated to the masses and no longer can one political party issue one message that is simply repeated but never questioned.  This attempt to stiffle the freedom of speech of those who dissent from this administration and their agenda will not be accepted or tolerated.  We will stand up to any and all attempts to crush any citizens freedoms and those of you attempting this fleece on america and her freedoms will be held accountable!
