Skip to comments.The FTC Confuses Newspapers With Journalism as it Seeks New Media Tax

As the FTC seeks to tax you and the alternative media to give support to the dinosaur media, the MSM, The MFM (whatever you want to call it) make your voice heard.
Why does the FTC want to do any of this? I am not a mind reader, but the FTC is an independent agency run by people appointed by the Obama Administration, which has been antagonistic to an Internet it cannot control and nostalgic for the good old days when the news was controlled by a handful of mostly liberal newsmen.
The FTC is merely suggesting these proposals. It adds, we welcome additional proposals, which can be submitted here. I suggest you write to them.?
At the very least, click on the link and let the FTC know what you think.

Oh, I have *lots* of creative proposals for what the FTC can do with themselves. Unfortunately, articulating them here would get me banned for life, if not arrested and jailed!
“The FTC Confuses Newspapers With Journalism...”
A lot like confusing education with indoctrination!
Who owns the news? I realize that freedom is open to abuse, but I would rather have the dangerous of an uncensored flow of information and data than one controlled by the government. I would rather have too much information than too little. It is not the responsibility of the government to create the fourth estate but to protect free speech, which includes the Internet. Without freedom of speech and information, there can never be a free nation.
