I wonder if the plan proposed by the FCC to have government monitors in Newsrooms is part of the evolution of Democracy? I can't understand how any clear thinking American can consider this a good idea, or use of government resources. Government presence, or intervention into the free press is totally unacceptable in a free society. Wheter it is a democratic administration monitor at fox news or a republican administration monitor at cnn, the bottom line would be intimidation and gov't control of what we are "allowed" to see and hear of the news. Much as I was upset with the Bush administration, the Obama administration has taken bad things to a new level! We did not get the transparency we were promised. The promise of no same old dirty Washington politics was broken as well, and now this! I can't think of a more regressive policy. Maybe this was just another example of a few over enthusiastic individuals similar to those at the IRS who singled out the conservative groups?
No announcement yet.
