The latest attack on a free press
Throughout history, politicians and government have wanted to control people’s speech, thoughts and the dissemination of news.
The latest attack on a free press in the U.S. is a program called the Fairness Doctrine.
President Obama and the progressive left/liberals wanted to implement the Fairness Doctrine. But the Republicans took over the House in 2010, making it impossible to pass.
Now, a new threat emerges.
If it wasn’t for a whistleblower in the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), we would be a step closer to having the government control the media.
In fact, the Obama FCC plan was to hire a liberal progressive group to lay the foundation for a government control of the media, similar to the Fairness Doctrine.
Fortunately, the publicity by a whistleblower quickly killed this plan in February. Here is a must-see video, about 4 minutes.
What do think about the government’s attempt to put their foot in the newsrooms? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
