They are not only targeting talk radio, they are coming after the social media as well. Right now we just have way too much freedom to bash the dipshit-n-chief.
WND - As reported exclusively by WND’s Aaron Klein, friends of the Obama administration are trying to sneak the now-defunct “Fairness Doctrine” back into law, disguised as – of all things – an action project on “climate change.”
In a recent report called “Building the Obama Administration’s Climate Legacy,” the Presidential Climate Action Project, or PCAP, recommends reinstating the “Fairness Doctrine,” the old FCC rule that kept conservative talk radio off the airwaves until the ruling was struck down during the Reagan administration.
Unlike many progressive calls for talk radio censorship, the PCAP report doesn’t disguise its intentions with weasel words like broadcasting “localism.” Instead, it states its recommendations plainly: “National discourse today is tainted – and in some cases poisoned – by unbalanced ideological use of the public airwaves. … To improve and better inform public discourse, it is time for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.”
Anyone accusing talk radio hosts and fans of “paranoid conspiracy theorizing” about the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine merely have to read the PCAP report for themselves. Progressives are now bold enough to state their intentions openly. Concerned Americans need to express their opposition to media censorship with equal frankness.
“Anybody who thinks that we can nominate somebody who is not going to be the focus of a media-destruction campaign is asinine,” declared Limbaugh this week.
