To any tyrant, a free press is intolerable. That’s why it’s enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitution.
Of course, our nooze media mostly serves as an arm of the Democrat Party and cheerleaders for whatever lib politician happens to be in power. Toward the current administration, and the current occupant of the White House, the press has been subservient to the point of idolatry.
And what has it gotten them?
Government “monitors” in TV newsrooms! ( http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/02/20/shockwaves-over-obama-administrations-plan-to-put-goverbnment-monitors-in-newsrooms-101932 )
Egged on, no doubt, by the Hugo Chavez wannabes in the White House, the FCC plans to send goons–er, “researchers”–”to oversee TV and radio newsrooms” and examine “the process by which stories are selected,” and so on. They’re going to take care of “perceived station bias–”
All right, get up from the floor. You don’t really need a barf bag, do you?
Now, what do you suppose would have happened, had George W. Bush even cracked a joke about wanting to do this?
For five years, the noozies have crept and crawled and groveled to the commie cabal on Pennsylvania Avenue, as they creep and crawl and grovel to every leftist who slithers into the seat of power.
And this is what they get!
It serves them right, of course. But it doesn’t serve the American people right.
UPDATE: This just in, from Fox News via Free Republic… The Federal Communications Commission has “shelved” its plan to take over TV and radio newsrooms.
Translation: The story broke before they were ready, embarrassed them, and they had to back off.
But they’ll try again.
