Obama's FCC Targets the Newsrooms
To advance this regime's insidious slide toward authoritarianism, the FCC recently announced its intention to introduce FCC "monitors" into media newsrooms to "study" the news media's journalistic philosophy and broadcast decision-making--of course, all in a harmless and honorable attempt to better ensure that underserved populations aren't somehow left out. Huh?
Monitors! What first came to mind when I read about this was Fascist Germany's and Stalin's relying precisely upon the same tactics to incrementally quash free speech and a free press, all in an odious effort to consolidate their political power.
Like nearly every agency of the federal government, and with the blessings of the Obama Regime, the FCC is expanding its powers well beyond its legal and constitutional limits. Anyone who isn't aware of this is either delusional, hopelessly ignorant or a fawning leftist ideologue.
