Who needs the First Amendment?

Apparently, not the FCC.

The FCC says it wants to examine “the process by which stories are selected,” as well as “perceived station bias” and “perceived responsiveness to underserved populations.”  The commission “plans to ask station managers, news directors, journalists, television anchors and on-air reporters to tell the government about their ‘news philosophy’ and how the station ensures that the community gets critical information.”

I guess the question now is, do you trust the FCC?  Do you trust any government agency under the Obama White House?  How about the IRS? They wouldn’t single out Republican organizations to audit, would they?  Oops, they already did that.  Now the FCC wants to examine news rooms?  Really?  Isn’t the administration getting enough favorable coverage?  I guess if the government can control the media, they won’t have to put up with ANY unfavorable coverage.  I suppose next they will want to put filters on Google searches.  Does any of this sound familiar? It does to me; just not in America.
