Henry Waxman Wants Censorship ("Fariness") Doctrine Applied To Internet; Bloggers Beware

This one hits a little too close to home. This is directed at all of us! Every conservative blogger and every American interested in free speech.

Let's not be fooled here, this is not about "fairness" or "balance". This is clearly about censorship for political gain and to establish a permanent voting majority for the Totalitarian-ocrats.

Why do you suppose much of the rhetoric over the so-called "Fairness" Doctrine was suspended during last year's campaign? Because the Obama camp to so much mileage out of Huffington Post, Daily KOs, MoveOn.org and the like.

Like much of the Democrats' strategy: when we do it, it's okay, when Republicans do it, it's wrong.

From American Spectator:

Senior FCC staff working for acting Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps held meetings last week with policy and legislative advisers to House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman to discuss ways the committee can create openings for the FCC to put in place a form of the "Fairness Doctrine" without actually calling it such.

Waxman is also interested, say sources, in looking at how the Internet is being used for content and free speech purposes. "It's all about diversity in media," says a House Energy staffer, familiar with the meetings.

"Does one radio station or one station group control four of the five most powerful outlets in one community? Do four stations in one region carry Rush Limbaugh, and nothing else during the same time slot? Does one heavily trafficked Internet site present one side of an issue and not link to sites that present alternative views? These are some of the questions the chairman is thinking about right now, and we are going to have an FCC that will finally have the people in place to answer them."

Why can't Waxman and the other Liberal moonbats understand that it's free market economics. Radio stations are "free" to air any kind of programming they see fit in order turn a profit! God forbid we let companies make money to pay their employees!

And as far as the Internet!?!?! Is he serious? I'm allowed to say whatever I want! Just as the Liberals are allowed to bash George Bush, promote their radical socialist society, I am free to criticize the Obama administration.

One idea Waxman's committee staff is looking at is a congressionally mandated policy that would require all TV and radio stations to have in place "advisory boards" that would act as watchdogs to ensure "community needs and opinions" are given fair treatment.

What does he mean by "advisory boards"? Is that like Thought Police? And don't be fooled, by "community needs and opinions", Waxman means "Liberal opinions are the only ideas we want people to hear."

Also involved in "brainstorming" on "Fairness Doctrine and online monitoring has been the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, which has published studies pressing for the Fairness Doctrine, as well as the radical MoveOn.org, which has been speaking to committee staff about policies that would allow them to use their five to six million person database to mobilize complaints against radio, TV or online entities they perceive to be limiting free speech or limiting opinion.

And there you have it! Yes, they are going to use MoveOn.Organists, Obama's Army, Obama 2.0 to silence the views of opposition. Seriously.

This is frightening. This is a blatant attempt to violate your freedom of speech.
