The "rationale" behind these new FCC Regulations will be to "protect consumers from false or misleading information." In passing the regulations, the FCC is not permitting any public comment or input.
In related news, the Obama Administration is now backing a Newspaper Industry bailout, to prevent long time publishers from going under as a result of the recession. Wait, is it a recession, or is it simply that the general public recognizes a White House Driven propaganda machine and has chosen not to support it? Either way, the Obama Administration has decided to financially burden we taxpayers on the progressive media's behalf so that we get "the real news", or that is to say, the news the Obama Administration wants us to get.
I report, you decide.
In more related news, the White House admitted the other day that the American Media (save for Fox News) is in the pocket of the Obama Administration and is directly following the administrations orders.
Here we have Anita Dunn speaking via videotape to a Dominican Republic government conference.
"Very rarely did we communicate through the press anything that we didn't absolutely control," said Dunn.
"One of the reasons we did so many of the David Plouffe videos was not just for our supporters, but also because it was a way for us to get our message out without having to actually talk to reporters," said Dunn, referring to Plouffe, who was Obama's chief campaign manager.
"We just put that out there and made them write what Plouffe had said as opposed to Plouffe doing an interview with a reporter. So it was very much we controlled it as opposed to the press controlled it," Dunn said.
Dunn has been under fire since she led a White House campaign last week against Fox News, claiming the top-rated news network (which beats CNN, CNN Headline News, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS nightly newscasts combined) was an "arm of the Republican Party" and "opinion journalism masquerading as news."
Fox News' response? You can see for yourself, in her own words, where Anita Dunn says Mao Tse-tung was her idol:
So why is the Obama Administration working so hard to get the "keys to the Internet" so they can shut it down and to squelch Fox News? Rule #1 in a Socialist take-over is to squelch all opposition. Once the media is controlled feeding the people only what the Administration wants it to hear, then they can do anything un-checked.
All I can say at this point is Joseph Goebbels would be proud of Obama, Anita Dunn, and the willing co-whores in the Media at CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC.
Thankfully Fox News isn't folding, and American's who desire true journalism have turned to Fox for the truth they can't find anywhere else.
Speaking Of The Only True News Source ...
How'd the mainstream media miss this one? Oh, that's right - the Obama Administration didn't think this was real news coming from their own Vice President, none other than the buffoon Joe Biden. Did you all know we're in a Depression? Yes, the Vice President said it:
It's official folks - we knew it all along, but it's high time someone from the Administration comes out and admits it - WE'RE IN A DEPRESSION!!!
