“Everyone should agree on this: The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.
Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring.
The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about “the process by which stories are selected” and how often stations cover “critical information needs,” along with “perceived station bias” and “perceived responsiveness to under-served populations.” (Ajit Pai) SOURCE
The link to the article is there, read it if you want, it turns my stomach to be honest. Our constitution is being destroyed before our very eyes and there is a HUGE number of Americans who don’t give a crap! Fearless leader has nothing to really tout as a success under his time as leader of this nation so what the hell lets just see what else he can screw up. Look I don’t know how to say this diplomatically and in fact I don’t about diplomacy at this point in time as we as a nation are seeing an all out assault on the AMERICAN WAY of LIFE and it is coming directly from the man occupying the Oval Office! Obama’s words “I am going to fundamentally change America.” ….. Well how is our nation looking after his remodeling job? Government overreach, a nation divided, Joblessness, broken health care, over spending, trillions of debt, who truly believes he has done this nation proud?
