Obama Administration Attacks Freedom of Press

Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 22, 2014

At the behest of the Obama Administration, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced a “study” that endangers the Country’s freedom of the press.  The study using typical governmental doubletalk jargon is called “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs”.  According to the FCC it is intended to understand a network’s “perceived station bias”, as well as how much of its time is dedicated to “critical information needs in a community”.

While the study is categorized as “voluntary”, given the FCC’s power over networks and their required licenses, this designation is a misnomer.

Below is a discussion of the FCC’s dangerous intrusion into the freedom of the press with comments by Judge Andrew Napolitano.  The Judge’s fears on this matter should be troubling to all Americans and is a continuation of the slippery slope our politically correct and Progressive society is traveling.  According to the World Press Freedom Index, since 2012 the US is rating has dropped to the 46th slot, down 13 since 2012.  More hope and change from an administration that cannot tolerate dissent.
