The Obama Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is now trying to REGULATE what gets presented as the "news" on radio, TV, and in print. Once again Obama is using his pen to get his way. The FCC have established the Critical Information Needs agency (CIN) whose purpose is to reside in the newsrooms of all FCC controlled media to "grill reporters, station managers, and editors" to see how they decide which stories to run as news. In the first phase, this effort will be merely a study of these organizations. The FCC claims that it as ONLY A STUDY of the media practices. God only knows what comes next after phase one!
The government's only reason for these actions is to "eliminate barriers to entry for entrepreneurs and small businesses in the communications industry." If you're buying that LAME EXCUSE, you're being too naive.
Recall that the FCC once established the "Fairness Doctrine" in 1949 which required equal time of the media for contrasting viewpoints of controversial issues. After numerous lawsuits and years of controversy over that doctrine, it was finally dropped in 1987. The FCC acknowledged that the Fairness Doctrine did NOT serve the public interest.
This new effort will begin in the spring of 2015 in Columbia, South Carolina.
Look at this for what it REALLY IS. This is another effort for the President to have full control over the media. It will SILENCE Conservative groups that the IRS cannot with their harassments. Let's be clear, this is just a masked for of the Obama government CENSORING the news. It ignores the Constitutional idea of a "Free Press."
Control the NEWS and you control the people. This whole concept is DANGEROUS and is a real THREAT to YOUR FREEDOMS!
Push-back hard America. Don't let this "new regulation" destroy our freedoms. This isn't America any longer. It's more like the fulfillment of Obama's MARXIST MANIFESTO!
