Bloviating Zeppelin: Obama's FCC: Time To Regulate News Via A "Public Value Test"

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Obama's FCC: Time To Regulate News Via A "Public Value Test"


Clear Demorat FCC Commissioner Michael Joseph Copps (04-13-1940), another ancient and withered GOWP (Guilty Overeducated White Person) indicated radio licenses could be continued only but if they "demonstrate measurable progress. If the station fails again, give the license to someone who will use it to serve the public interest."

Copps outlined a plan for a "Public Value Test" every four years that would make the license renewal of broadcasters contingent upon meeting federal criteria such as the delivery of news, diversity, the conducting of community input meetings and local programming requirements.



If radio and television is on Mr Copps' radar, then so must be blogs, necessarily so.

They are a means of communication, are they not?

Mr Copps, of course, envisions not only "race quotas" but in his purple-planet skies, "gender quotas" and "income quotas."

As some have said: "Fox -- meet hen-house."

So to speak.

Mr Copps also said:

Arguments rage over the right to secretly manage and prioritize content and to favor the affluent saw it as an affront to free speech. Barton also asked whether "five commissioners can do a better job of ensuring that Americans have access to a wide diversity of content and viewpoints than Americans can themselves by expressing their preferences ... in the vigorously competitive marketplace."

Bloggers and Conservatives beware: your First Amendment existence may be on the table -- once again.

And -- imagine this -- at the behest of Demorat/Progressive/Leftist elements.

NFO: I suspect this is on the so-called "back burner."

But when I suspect that my First Amendments are even "remotely" threatened,

Then I proffer them on Front Street.

Lets bring this up again in to years when we have a Republican President.
Then we can sit back and watch the entire left side of America implode in a green cloud of hypocrisy as they bring that censorship boogieman out.

I'll bring the beer!

I sounded that warning to fellow bloggers a few years ago. They laughed at me.

KurtP: love him or hate him, Rush Limbaugh brought out the successful side of Conservatism. . .

Robert: there would be Leftist heads exploding all over the nation, marches, strikes, boycotts, lawsuits, you name it.

AOW: as have I for a number of years, just like yourself. You KNOW that we are on SOMEone's radar screen somewhere. . .

SOMETHING needs to be done to stop the irritating noise blocking true PROGRESS since none of us noise makers are open to being educated.
