Posted on 09/16/2008 9:07:24 AM PDT by jakerobins
Chicago radio station WGN-AM is again coming under attack from the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama for offering airtime to a controversial author. It is the second time in recent weeks the station has been the target of an "Obama Action Wire" alert to supporters of the Illinois Democrat.
(Excerpt) Read more at chicagotribune.com ...
Under Hussein’s administration only Pravda and Isvestia will be allowed.
Especially since the LEFT-WING smear machine IS the public airwaves!
David Freddoso and Jerome Corsi have hit a nerve with the Obama campaign.
Liberals are always scared when the truth is spoken.
Just how many authors with anti-Bush books full of lies were paraded around by the MSM?
Only you and Obama want to take that away from Americans!
Correction: Under Husseins administration only Al Jazeera will be allowed.
Will WGN look into 3 executed gays at Wright's church, lost phone records in the CPD, or false arrest tactics of the sitting Delaware AG - all to cover up for Barry & The JoeBeau? David Axelrod's head would explode!
The internet will become the new underground for the right.

How Illinois can make a difference
Last week, Barack accepted the Democratic nomination with the support of over 80,000 people in Denver and millions more watching at home. It was a historic moment — the culmination of 19 months of hard work by supporters like you.
Here in Barack’s home state, we have a unique opportunity to make a big impact once again and spread Barack’s message of change in the general election.
With just 50 days left before Election Day, November 4th, we can’t afford to sit on the sidelines. Too many people are counting on us. We are literally surrounded by crucial battlegrounds — Iowa, Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Missouri.
That’s why we’re introducing a new program to mobilize Barack’s most dedicated supporters. We’ll be organizing trips for Illinois supporters to each of our neighboring battleground states, every weekend from now through Election Day.
Sign up to become a leader in this movement and make a difference in a battleground state right next door.
This is a great way to meet fellow supporters, grow this movement, and bring new voices into the political process.
Learn more about taking a trip to help Barack in a neighboring state:
If you’re in the Chicago area but can’t make it to a battleground state, sign up to volunteer at the Illinois Headquarters: http://il.barackobama.com/ILvol

Tonight: Contact WGN
by Illinois from Chicago, ILMonday, September 15, 2008 at 09:36 PM
The author of the latest anti-Barack hit book is appearing on WGN Radio in the Chicagoland market tonight.
David Freddoso has made a career off dishonest, extreme hate mongering, even calling legislation to protect people from hate crimes the “Thought Police.”
And WGN apparently thinks this card-carrying member of the right-wing smear machine needs a bigger platform for his lies and smears about Barack Obama — on the public airwaves.
Freddoso will be on WGN tonight from 9:00 to 11:00 to promote his new attack book against Barack.
Tell WGN that by providing Freddoso with airtime, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse.
Call into the “Extension 720” show with Milt Rosenberg at (312) 591-7200
(Show airs from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. tonight)
Then report back on your call at http://my.barackobama.com/WGNstandards.
Calling will only take a minute, and it will make a huge difference if we show that our grassroots movement can go toe-to-toe with their media smear machine.
Confront Freddoso tonight before this goes any further:

There is the page on the Obama website that talks about WGN.
A hint of the book burnings and printing press destruction seen in radical mob scenes of the past. Freedom of speech and the press must be banned to achieve control. Intimidation and in some cases violence has been used to eliminate the opposition.
Must be who the twit is trying to censor today. Typical commie.
Liberal = anti-freedom of speech. Instead of wild goose chasing in Alaska, I'd like to see some media investigation of the "Obama Action Wire" minion's foul deeds in response to these emails from the Obama campaign. Imagine the audacity of these "brownshirts" if he is elected.
Imagine if that would-be Communist dictator takes office! He would be another Hugo Chavez, or worse.
It’s not Ok to ban the book, but it’s Ok to ban talk radio shows about a book?
