FCC Commissioner Wants to Control the Content of Broadcast Media
By Chuck Rogér
The First Amendment forbids Congress from infringing on Americans’ right to free speech. But the Federal Communications Commission is not Congress. And Michael Copps, one of four FCC commissioners reporting to Chairman Julius Genachowski, seems intent on ignoring that pesky part of the First Amendment about “abridging the freedom of speech” when that speech is sent out over the airwaves.
In two American Thinker articles earlier this year, I discussed possible FCC attempts to force progressive programming into broadcast media. Now, in addition to a nasty Christmas present that Genachowski wants to give Americans on December 21 (Net Neutrality), Copps wants government to control private-sector broadcast content.
The thing relative to this that frustrates me is how little this frustrates me! This mal-Administration has done and is attempting so much @#$%ing tyranous crap that I’m on Outrage Overload!
