Inspired by Saul Alinsky, FCC 'Diversity' Chief Calls for Confrontational Movement to Give Public Broadcasting Dominant Role in Communications Wednesday, August 26, 2009 By Matt Cover
(CNSNews.com) Mark Lloyd, chief diversity officer of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), called for a confrontational movement to combat what he claimed was control of the media by international corporations and to re-establish the regulatory power of government through robust public broadcasting and a more powerful FCC.
Lloyd expressed his regulatory call to arms in his 2006 book, Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America (University of Illinois Press).
In the book, Lloyd also said that public broadcasting should be funded through new license fees charged to the nations private radio and television broadcasters, and that new regulatory fees should be used to fund eight new regional FCC offices.
These offices would be responsible for monitoring political advertising and commentary, childrens educational programs, number of commercials, and content ratings of the programs.
Frequently referencing one of his heroes, left-wing activist Saul Alinsky, Lloyd claims in his book that the history of American communications policy has been one of continued corporate control of every form of communication from the telegraph to the Internet.

Left wing nut.
how many wingnuts will surface or be appointed before the coffin is tightly sealed on liberty?
The coffin will not be sealed on liberty....
Yet another communist in Obama’s administration. How many is that now?
...”confrontational movements” amongst minorities move us a little further down the road to the coming race war....the Left knows this, hense their desire to disarm law abiding gun owners.
What the hay does “confrontational movement” mean?
Sounds like some left-wing psychotic is advocating violence.
Like when the SEUI sends in the 300 pound goons that shove cameras in peoples faces or push people around. But we got to see it on Youtube. You precious SEUI and ACORN scum will be found out, Lloyd.
The march toward implementing the fairness doctrine and suppressing the First Amendment begins.
Perhaps not on the ideal, but perhaps on the embodiment.
However, history has its Houdinis.
Pity it may have to get to that.
Anyway, the question remains and for your, reformulated: how many wingnuts till a generation is wasted and there has to be a war for liberty?
rephrase it anyway you like, split hairs if you will with the premises, the question still remains? How many more?
“These offices would be responsible for monitoring political advertising and commentary, childrens educational programs, number of commercials, and content ratings of the programs. “
The Ministry of Thought and Propaganda.
I think the groundswell of peaceful revolt by otherwise un-involved people is what makes me believe we are turning this around.
They have awakened a sleeping giant: Middle/Upper Middle Class white people.
The shouting and screaming at TownHall meetings hopefully will serve as a reminder to the extremists in Washington: You serve at our pleasure...
Neither Progressive era reforms nor new communications technologies have been able to correct the problems resulting from government abdication of a responsibility to advance the equal capability of citizen discourse, Lloyd added.
Amazing. The bald face advocating of government tyranny.
This looks like it’s way beyond the fairness doctrine!
Is that you, Charlie?
It’s Claire Wolfe Time.
Pretty much all of them, I'm afraid.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
What he advocates is clearly Un-Constitutional.
Obozo's minions simply choose to ignore the restraints placed on government by the Constitution. They choose to pretend that it is no longer relevant. They are Wrong.
Anarchist sit-ins and studio take-overs, coming to a JACK-FM station near you.....
So TRUE. Liberty NEVER dies, only those that defend it come and go.
