Stop The FCC From Muzzling Free Speech!

Stop The FCC From Muzzling Free Speech!

Dear Friend,

The Federal Communications Commission is sending out investigators to radio and TV stations throughout the country -- and to daily and weekly newspapers too -- asking intrusive questions about how they decide what news to cover.

The questions, being sent to assignment editors, on-air reporters, print correspondents, editors, publishers, and owners all ask who makes the decision and based on what criteria. 

The FCC will also do a content analysis of every radio and TV station and newspapers to see if they are covering each of 8 areas of "critical information" adequately including the environment, economic opportunity, poverty etc..

Since radio and TV stations must apply for licenses every 8 years, the questions are highly intimidating and could lay the basis for federal censorship.

The FCC is basing its study on a "finding" by the Annenberg School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Southern California that news media now does not adequately cover the news of importance to minority populations.

FREE SPEECH AND FREE PRESS are on the line!

Please sign this petition and circulate it to your friends and family to sign to stop the FCC from encroaching on our liberties!

(Newspapers, which aren't included in the FCC purview in the first place are being thrown into the study despite the lack of jurisdiction)

We will forward your signature to your Senators and Congressman.  Please be sure to include your name, hard mailing address, and your email so we can do so.

We'll add your email address to our Alerts list to keep you posted on progress and let you know if we need to take further action.

Thanks,

Dick Morris

Isn't this a direct violation of free speech? The Government is only to provide for the Defense of its citizen. Not take our rights away!!

"Congress shall make no law"... What exactly is unclear about that?

It seems to me this activity by the FCC, depending, I guess, on exactly what the FCC does in this regard, is unconstitutional (by way of violating the First Amendment)!!! It seems to me the specific actions mentioned in this petition are, indeed, unconstitutional!!! In any case, legislation must be passed and signed reducing the power of the FCC, reducing the scope of the FCC's authority, reducing the activities the FCC has power over, and so forth!

The president is increasing the speed at which he is transforming/destroying America so much thst we can barely keep up with his ticks. This atempt to silence the media is among his worst manuevers. STOP him!
