Politico Gets It Way Wrong On Conservatives' Complaints About Diversity Czar Lloyd
NewsBusters.org ^ | 09/07/2009 | Seton Motley

Posted on 09/07/2009 11:24:19 AM PDT by UnalienablyRight

In yesterday's More czars on conservative hit list, the Politico's Lisa Lerer states "conservatives have accused (Mark) Lloyd, appointed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) as the agency’s Chief Diversity officer in late July, of secretly wanting to reinstate the controversial Fairness Doctrine."

This is not at all accurate. We at the Media Research Center broke the news of Lloyd’s FCC gig (created just for him just the way the “green jobs czar” slot was for the recently dispatched conspiracy-addled Truther-Communist Van Jones). And we specifically stated that he had "no need for the mis-named 'Fairness' Doctrine." From that essay:

The media constantly misquotes conservatives. Take Mark Steyn from his fill-in for Rush. All the media misquoted him to come up with a story.

They will try to bring back the fairness doctrine in another form and give it another name. No question about. We have got to get rid of this guy.

The left has to bring back the “fairness” doctrine in some form or another. The First Amendment and communism are not compatible.

It may not be what MRC or other Republicans are claiming. But it sure is what *I* am accusing him of planning to implement, by any other name, using different tactics, but with the same eventual goal: soviet style DemoLeftie control over all Radio channels.

Then she goes on to say that is not at all accurate.....however,

"“It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press,” he said. “This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies.”
Mark Lloyd.......

I have the feeling there are forces at work to over throw our government...but calling that treasonous act by other names. Mark Lloyd is another radical who wants power and change.......not America as we know it.

Fight fire with fire. Use Alinsky’s rules to get rid of this Chavez loving Communist enemy of freedom from the FCC. Since there is video evidence, perhaps this won’t be as difficult as some think. It isn’t just radio stations that this guy believes in controlling. It extends to the Internet as well.

Mark Lloyd has to go!!

Van Jones Did Not Fill Out WH Questionnaire

Fox News correspondent James Rosen spoke with 911Truth.org spokesman Mike Berger on Friday and Berger said Jones knew what the petition said and agreed with its contents.

"He did agree with that statement and he did sign on to it," Berger said in a phone interview with Rosen. Berger said the group's "original board members individually confirmed all signatories that had signed on to the statement." Asked by what means the confirmation was obtained, Berger said: "They did it through email or on the phone."

An administration official said Jones never hid his controversial associations or remarks from the White House.

"It's just fair to say that he didn't go through the most rigorous vetting process."

Don’t expect any TRUTH from the Obama White house or this ‘reporter’. NONE of the czars filled out questionnaires according to Fox News. And MSM are not going to report anything on them.

Politico is far left. Their “reporters” often appear on MSNBC.

This guy lies every time he opens his mouth. I don’t trust anything he says. The people of this country are realizing the same thing. We need to look at who is realing directing this fool. We have some idea but it needs to be tied down as to exact names.

Jones’ presence as White House “czar” brings into question the entire czar system. As well it should, as we should be skeptical of unvetted and unaccountable functionaries in the White House.

Am I wrong or is Beck leading the charge while others, like Hannity and Rush, are doing back up? I’ve mostly been watching Glenn’s show and he’s certainly full speed ahead in highlighting the pasts of these radicals.

Rush should be relentlessly pounding on Lloyd.

I was disappointed with Rush Limbaugh today. He should have spent his entire show following up on Van Jones ouster and the other czars. He should have been supporting Glenn Beck and pounding on Obama’s army of radicals. It was perfect timing for it. Instead, Rush was MIA.

VERY disappointing.

0bama has subverted the Constitution's envisioned structure of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments with the creation of these czarist or commissar posts.

The US voters' representatives in Congress have not been allowed the opportunity to question these czars' credentials before open committee. Keeping the Congress and the US citizenry in the dark (note: opposite of transparency) about important, Department-head appointees is part of the Constitutional protections that are being subverted. IMHO, these subversions of the Constitution violate BHO's Presidential Oath to uphold the Constitution, and are therefore impeachable transgressions on his part.

Congress specifically authorizes certain monies to be spent by these Departments, a function of money spending which has at least partly been overtaken by these czars, which weaks the protections we have under the Constitution.

That an avowed Communist with stronger anti-US allegiances than pro-US, such as Van Jones, can take over the money-disbursing reins of the US Government is wholly against the best-laid plans of those signers of the Constitution. That 0bama has in considered fashion done this shows Barry Soetero to be an enemy of the Constitution.

And that enemy of the Constitution needs to resign his office more quickly than Van Jones did.

A media czar who praises Chavez’s repression of free press.

Politico and MSM get it wrong on purpose. The truth is too damning.
