Oops! That FCC government monitor thing was completely partisan after all

I think Barack Obama ought to borrow Brittany Spears’ song as the theme for his administration. Oops…he did it yet again. Caught in the act of trying to infringe on our liberties under the guise of “research” with the FCC government monitor project.

As we reported recently, the FCC was considering placing government monitors across in newsrooms in order to make sure critical information was being reported. After an uproar, this plan was suspended, but Byron York writing for the Washington Examiner reports that the whole scheme was a partisan exercise from the very beginning saying the plan originated among Democrats on the FCC; the commission’s two Republican members didn’t even learn about it until it was well under way.

The FCC enlisted scholars from two big journalism schools, the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Communication and Democracy, to determine the “critical information needs” about which journalists would be questioned.

Neither of these learned institutions could be considered conservative or even a centrist. And even worse comes the revelation that four of the five study authors just happened to be Obama donors.

I suppose there’s no big deal with folks donating to President Obama — albeit I would question their intellectual rigor — but we all know most colleges are liberal progressive petri dishes tended by liberal progressive professors.

But if you’re going to do a study that’s supposed to look at invading newsrooms across America, shouldn’t you at least try to masquerade it as non-partisan?

In this case there was no diverse opinion. It’s not hard to imagine how the “critical information needs” matrix was developed for implementation.

So oops, the Obama administration did it again — tried to attack American liberties, this time freedom of the press, in a sneaky way that ended up being quite obvious to us all. These folks are the enemies of liberty and freedom. They only desire absolute power and will use any means necessary to achieve their tyrannical designs.

Oops. The American people did it again in 2012. But we can fix that mistake in November. Only 247 days.


      • Annenberg’s just as left wing. His Philadelphia Inquirer is nothing but a mimeograph machine for the DNC/CPUSA.

      • They are who they are, I do not have a problem with them, as long as they do not try to push Communism down our throats like Soros. Soros is an Evil Man and has evil intentions

    • @philantropussy: YouYet another shallow attempt to defend the indefensible liberal politicians. You never see anything substantive from you brainless twerps, just some words you’ve been programmed to say. Jerk!

      • I’m amazed that when I attempt to talk to them using facts and information, they look back at me as though I were speaking in a different language. Its troubling that there is no intellectual curiosity, just knee-jerk personal assaults. Such as “right wing rag” without addressing any facts.

      • You have your news sources and I have mine. That’s what make America an open society.

      • Waste of time. That is not one of the Trollette’s® approved information sources. The lightbulb is lit, albeit dimly, but all the doors to the mind are closed.

      • Just off the top of my head, keep up okay-
        Dana Perino ( bush admin) on FOX
        Jenna B Hager, daughter Bush now on nbc
        Megan McCain dau of John McCain now in Piviot
        Tucker Carlson father was rep ambassador and VOA director during Reagan
        Bill Kristol’s father one of the first neocons
        John Podhoretz son of consv journalists and Reagan and Bush speechwriter

    • “Inquirer,” really? Did the publication that exposed Bill Clinton’s sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky change their name?

    • You at it again? do we have to go rounds? You know full well, MSNBC is the worst followed by CNN,ABC,CBS, NBC THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE WASHINGTON POST. All liberal rags you claim Partisan much, Hypocrite?

    • …. relentless….No matter how many times they are proven wrong about their system. Reason – it is all about power and money – for themselves. They are filth and Obama is the filthiest pig in our history. I think he is worse than Mao and Stalin because at least you knew what they stood for. Obama keeps his communist ideology as covered up as possible.

  1. I would guess this isn’t the end of the story. Liberals don’t give up nearly as easily as Republicans!

  2. In Obama’s own words,…”you bring a knife, we’ll bring a gun”.
    What we are seeing is the culmination of 100 years of preparation for the 2008 election of Barack Obama, and the re-election by fraud in 2012.
    A company in Spain counted the votes after the election in 2012, and declared Obama the winner.
    I find it curious that Michelle Obama made a trip to Spain prior to the election.
    Was there something nefarious going on there ?

    A non-vetted candidate who has yet to release his school records is destroying the foundation of this Country.

  3. GW, responding to an honorary letter of invitation, in part replied:
    “Flattering as it may be to the human mind, and truly honorable as it is to receive from our fellow citizens testimonies of approbation for exertions to promote the public welfare, it is not less pleasing to know, that the milder virtues of the heart are highly respected by a society whose liberal principles must be founded in the immutable laws of truth and justice.”
    How very far we’ve come in our selection of presidents, past and present, who in no way approach the warranting of such commendation from a grateful public, but who scheme only to funnel increase of the public disbursement to fellow colleague and primary constituent alike to the exclusion of the overall health and stability of the nation. http://www.couragetolaugh.com.
