Actual title is : It’s baaack! The plan to kill talk radio. Group advising White House wants to restore controversial policy

An organization that helped to craft President Obama’s environmental policies has recommended the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine, purportedly as a method of silencing critics of the theory of global warming.

The Presidential Climate Action Project, or PCAP, last year released an extensive list of recommendations for the White House in a 75-page paper entitled, “Building the Obama Administration’s Climate Legacy.”

Primary among the PCAP’s recommendations is that the Department of Energy should join the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) what is known as the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

The Partnership, which distributes over $1 billion in grants, says it aims to “help communities nationwide improve access to affordable housing, increase transportation options, and lower transportation costs while protecting the environment.”

Another key recommendation in the report is the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine.

Reads the PCAP report: “National discourse today is tainted – and in some cases poisoned – by unbalanced ideological use of the public airwaves… To improve and better inform public discourse, it is time for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.”

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the Federal Communications Commission that required the holders of broadcast licenses to issues of public importance in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced.

...unbalanced ideological use of the public airwaves...

Well, you could fix that just by shutting down MSNBC... and whatever microphone Keith Olberman is now using.

There is only a small core group that wants to save talk radio. Talk radio threatens RINOs every bit as much as it threatens Democrats.

Be prepared, liberals are not industrious, they are generally not productive, nor are they positive in their influence. But, what they are is mindlessly relentless.

also from the article

While the PCAP coordinates with the White House, KleinOmline previously exposed how Obama’s controversial former “green jobs” czar, Van Jones, is one of twenty members of the PCAP’s advisory board.

Jones name appeared on the group’s most recent recommendation paper.

Jones resigned in September after it was exposed he founded a communist revolutionary organization and signed a statement that accused the Bush administration of possible involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Ok.

I am totally sick of these aholes.

If this election doesn’t send them packing back to their ivory tower gulags, there should be other means of getting them to stfu.

Like they want to have done to the rest of us.

I can’t say it vehemently enuff; EFF these people!

Boy, is that an appropriate picture for the subject.

I don’t care if it’s Noot, Santy, or The Rich Evil Mormon, if the 0Baminites win this one we’re all screwed.

It definitely is. You know one of the planks of communism is goverment ownership of property? Recently 0 announced he wants to take foreclosed homes and rent them out, with the feds as the landlords. We ARE closer than we realize to them achieving their goals and most are totally close.

They want it like he good old days in the ‘70s and ‘80s when the news was 100% liberal and people like Walter Cronkite and Dan RaTHer were treated like the ultimate authority in politics. But then this guy named Rush came along.....Bwa ha ha ha
