So, the FCC attempts to conduct a "study" of the news media as a ruse to cover their real intent -- find out as much about reporters, anchors, news directors, editors as possible in order to find sources of "bias." But the organization that developed the study for the FCC is a social service organization that caters to minority and so-called "underserved" populations.
So, after an outcry from the public, the FCC scraps the plan.
End of story, right? Wrong. You can rest assured the federal government is going to get this done one way or another. This is what Barack Obama and his jackbooted minions are all about. If they can't use the FCC to influence the way news is reported, including which stories to promote and which ones to bury, then they will use other means.
Think of Eric Holder's DOJ. Think of the EPA. Yes, you saw that right. The EPA. Think of the power Obama has made sure they have amassed. And then think about Homeland Security and its various agencies. Feds can and have found ways to go after the innocent when an agenda is at stake. And it doesn't matter which agency does it. It's an alphabet soup of bureaus that are all part of the same cabal.
You say these agencies have no authority over broadcast communication or newspapers or magazines? Well, under normal conditions, true enough. But these aren't normal conditions. These are the days when interloping despots have invaded government and will use whatever means necessary to trample on the rights of the people. And they MUST gain control of the news. That was the first step of similar despots such as Hitler, Lenin and Stalin, and Chairman Mao.
So, watch this developing story very carefully, my friends. There is much more to come. We have only seen the tiny portion of what they plan to do.
