In keeping with President Obama’s big government ambitions, and the ambitions of left wingers all over the globe, the US Federal Communications Commission has announced a plan to control the internet and a proposal to sustain “traditional media” by requiring broadcasters to reflect ethnic diversity and a commitment to public affairs programming to keep their license.
This is all a reaction to the open discussion on the internet and talk radio, and the rise of FOX News. We all knew these tyrannical left wing zealots would come after us sooner or later. Do not be mistaken. These people are scum of the worst kind. They’re cast in the same mould as Adolf Hitler, Chairman Mao, Pol Pot and so many other totalitarian filth from the left’s sad history. They are just today a lot more sophisticated and deceitful in their methods.
The threats are coming from FCC commissioners, Michael Copps and Julius Genachowski, (crowned agency chairman by Obama.) The FCC’s five commissioners are political appointees assigned by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate for five-year terms. Their job is to regulate interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable.
Now the agency wants to control cyberspace with yet-to-be-disclosed rules that will “preserve the freedom and openness of the internet.” Yeah sure. Genachowski announced that a draft of the secret rules is complete, but the proposed regulations are being kept from the public until commissioners vote on them later this month. In fact, a newspaper report reveals that Genachowski’s draft document is stamped “non-public, for internal use only” to ensure nobody outside the agency sees it until the rules are approved.
This week, Copps threatened free speech and enterprise with an outrageous proposal that’s clearly aimed at conservative stations viewed as a threat to the administration’s liberal agenda. To “help media help democracy” the FCC should conduct a “public value test” of every commercial broadcaster every four years before renewing their license.
Failing to pass the test means the broadcaster goes on probation for a year and eventually loses its broadcasting rights if it doesn’t demonstrate “measurable progress” to serve the public interest. The test features seven parts, including how well stations reflect ethnic diversity, a meaningful commitment to news and public affairs programming and political advertising disclosure.
I find it completely gobsmacking that this outrageous kind of assault of freedom of expression can be seriously considered in the US. Who the damn hell are these people? Shut their damn departments down and export them to North Korea right now. That a country founded on freedom can today produce such vermin as Copps and Genachowski and award them powerful positions in government is unbelievable. This extreme left Obama POS has to go, and so do all of his vile little communist lackies. Dangerous scum, perverting freedom to destroy freedom.
