First Amendment: The FCC has cooked up a plan to place "researchers" in U.S. newsrooms, supposedly to learn all about how editorial decisions are made. Any questions as to why the U.S. is falling in the free press rankings?

As if illegal seizures of Associated Press phone records and the shadowy tailing of the mother of a Fox News reporter weren't menacing enough, the Obama administration is going out of its way to institute a new intrusive surveillance of the press, as if the press wasn't supine enough.

Ajit Pai, a commissioner with the Federal Communications Commission, warned this week in a Wall Street Journal op-ed that a plan to dispatch researchers into radio, television and even newspaper newsrooms called the "Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs" is still going forward, despite the grave danger it presented to the First Amendment.

Pai warned that under the rationale of increasing minority representation in newsrooms, the FCC, which has the power to issue or not issue broadcasting licenses, would dispatch its "researchers" to newsrooms across America to seek their "voluntary" compliance about how news stories are decided, as well as "wade into office politics" looking for angry reporters whose story ideas were rejected as evidence of a shutout of minority views.

Another lie from the Muslim Maggot

tell them to go to hell or we will help them get there.

Totally and the Liberal media accused right wing supporters of being that same thing! Can anyone find any real honor and integrity in the Liberal media? They set that up as they knew they would be accused of that same thing, although we are telling the truth! Face it Americans, the Liberal media is not Liberal, they are fully Marxist and are supporting the Illuminati at the same time. Flags together, but not for freedom but for enslavement!

As I look at the way things are on the east and West coast. Their ways are moving inwards. None of these govt agencies are legit anymore. Sure, there are some good people in them, but they cannot go against orders. This is another step, set up by advisor Jarrett. We have to start making arrests. And establish a Peoples Grand Jury. To commit and convict these people of high crimes and misdemeanors, namely treason.

Todd, that's a great idea.  Keep it legal and put them all on trial.  Only one problem is that Holder is the head of Just US- him and Obama

Obama is illegal. He was voted in by fraud. The George Soros voting machines. There is a website on how to build a grand jury. Locate George Soros and Bill Ayers. And string them up for voter fraud. With other charges. Holder might be the AG, but AG of what? Fast and furious and murder. Obama, I have a whole list of high crimes.

Obama basically told us that things are going down in 2014.  Remember 2014 is the year for action!

If you like your media you can keep it.

Yes, and he has got it, except for Fox. The Liberal media, if we remember, accused right wing groups that we were as Fascist and like Hitler before they came full blast in supporting Obama/Marxism/ and the Illuminati! They were evil and one step ahead, just like Obama when he knows he will be attacked... he has his back covered by the radical and insane Liberal media, who do not support honor in media.. just control of others, worldwide and especially in our free Country!

The only solution is to impeach OBAMA.

The liberal media has been sucking his dong now it's going to turn around and bite them in the butt. lol

THIS IS NOTHING LESS THAN " OBAMA'S  CONTINUING COMMUNISTIC CORRUPTION/LAWLESSNESS"....AND MORE GOV'T TYRANNY/GOV'T ABUSE  IN NEW ATTEMPTS TO "SILENCE A FREE PRESS IN AMERICA"......MORE PROOF THAT OBAMA IS A MISERABLE, PARANOID, INSANE, POWER MAD, SOCIOPATH !!!!!!!
