Barack Obama has ordered his FCC Chairman to create its first "Diversity Committee." This so-called "Diversity Committee"—which is made up of a diverse crowd of left-wing radicals and politically correct liberal trouble makers—will now be given federal authority to determine who can own a radio station and what voices can be heard.
So, according to the great neocon blogfest, the nation's enemies are not terrorists, but un-American liberals like Olbermann, Matthews and Maddow.The Obama censorship plan will give our enemies the unilateral authority to make talk radio as diverse as MSNBC television's Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and Rachel Maddow lineup. This is not the America that we know, and not the country that the Founding Founders envisioned when they wrote the First Amendment!
And from the champion screamer, Michelle Malkin:
The diversity-mongers on Barack Obama’s FCC bean-counting panel don’t like how a private radio ratings system is working out for their pet stations.
So they’re putting pressure on the government to make Arbitron change its measurement tools to ensure politically correct results.
Who needs the Fairness Doctrine? The race-based enforcers on the FCC are in the house.
The Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C. App. 2 governs the operations of the Advisory Committee on Diversity for Communications in a Digital Age (hereinafter “Diversity Committee” or “Committee”).
The guiding principles under FACA are:
- Openness in government
- Diversity in membership and advice; and
- Public accountability
The mission of the Advisory Committee on Diversity for Communications in the Digital Age is to make recommendations to the FCC regarding policies and practices that will further enhance the ability of minorities and women to participate in telecommunications and related industries.
