Liberals are all about CONTROL.. They hate the constitution especially the first and second amendments. We’ve seen several of Pelosi-Reid mistakes–the B.O. puppet just delivered them: closing Gitmo, appointing un-vetted tax-evaders to office, reversing the non-funding of international abortions, and passing the porkulus bill among other atrocities. Baumy has realized that the idiots who put him in office are waking up from their hypnotic drugged sleep so he has to hide what he’s doing and he has two other stooges to help him. The Fairless Doctrine has morphed into a “Community Regulators” of Free Speech (less).
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rule in question is called “localism.” Radio and television stations are required to serve the interests of
their local community as a condition of keeping their broadcast licenses. Obama needs only three votes from the five-member FCC to define localism in
such a way that no radio station would dare air any syndicated conservative
programming. This will come about by what is called “Alinsky jujitsu.” Obama trained under the Alinsky method, worked as an organizer in an Alinsky
offshoot called Chicago’s Developing Communities Project, and also taught it to others. Alinsky jujitsu as applied to conservative talk radio means using
vague rules already on the books to threaten any station which dares to air conservative programs with the loss of its valuable broadcast license. The head
of Obama’s transition team was John Podesta, the CEO of the Center for American Progress, a far-left group hell-bent on destroying conservative talk
radio. In 2007, this group issued a report, The Structural Imbalance of Political Talk Radio.
……………The libs, who control all media, cannot stand the one venue–AM
radio–(and the one station on television–Fox News) that presents an opposing view. In the Liberal World, there can be no opposition, no opinion but the liberal one.
………………Now comes the Community Advisory Board poised to end all
conservative talk radio at last! These random efforts could be far more effective at silencing conservatives if they could only be systematized and
institutionalized. That is exactly what the FCC proposed on January 24th. Every radio and television station would be required to create:
[P]ermanent advisory boards comprised of local officials and other community leaders, to periodically advise them of local needs and issues, and seek
comment on the matter. …To ensure that these discussions include representatives of all community elements, these boards would be made up of leaders
of various segments of the community, including underserved groups.
If you remember Bush’s 2004 election when Sinclair Broadcasting Company tried to air a piece criticizing Kerry’s war record, you remember that the
company was coerced to back off and the piece never ran.
Poised to pre-empt programming on its 62 television stations to run a negative documentary about Sen. John Kerry, Sinclair Broadcast Group has come
under fire from critics calling it partisan and questioning whether it is failing federal broadcast requirements to reflect local interests. Members of
Congress and independent media groups have questioned the company’s willingness to respect “localism,” a section of federal law that requires media
companies to cover local issues and provide an outlet for local voices.
