Actual title is : Its baaack! The plan to kill talk radio. Group advising White House wants to restore controversial policy
An organization that helped to craft President Obamas 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 Administrations Climate Legacy.
Primary among the PCAPs 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 Commissions view, honest, equitable and balanced.

Just like the Soviet Union. Those good ole Dems. that fight for our rights and freedoms to do anything you want except talk and have ideas of freedom.
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 Obamas controversial former green jobs czar, Van Jones, is one of twenty members of the PCAPs advisory board.
Jones name appeared on the groups 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.
Obama will get right on it and fire out an Executive Order and fix those nasty talk radio people LOL
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
You’re right. You left out evil though!
What a great quote, I am going to use that. Thank You
LOL....The more I see that pic the more I’m convinced that dude was Dracula. He looks more like Dracula than Bela Legosi.
Attention libdems prepare to mount your dead donkeys and ride again!
Hold on when I said “mount” I didn’t mean..oh never mind.
Is Newt Gingrich’s Fairness Doctrine being revived again??
What, this is a surprise? We all know that the Bill of Rights only applies to liberals. Conservatives aren’t worthy—just ask any liberal.
Don’t give him any ideas!
It's ironic how much truth there is in this statement. But not the way they're trying to portray it...
I think you’re holding back lol.
Free speech should only be “free” if one says the right(er... make that Left Big Nanny approved) things. Notice all the Leftnoids efforts are always presented as insuring “fairness”. But the reality is 180 from the rhetoric. Truth to liberals MUST be restricted... because Truth is most always politically incorrect! Truth to tyrants MUST always be punished... look what was done to the ultimate Truth teller 2,000 years ago!
You really are intellectually dishonest, aren’t you?
This is nothing compared to what he would do if re-elected!
This Fairness Doctrine stuff has to pass in order for him to pull off the coup de grace.....blanket amnesty for tens of millions of illegals by executive order at just the right time before the November election.
Obama has NEVER lost sight of his agenda. Some defeats, many roadblocks, occasional bad timing, he brushes it all aside and carries on.....NOTHING stops him from ploughing ahead with his agenda.
He is a many-headed monster like the poisonous Hydra of mythology - if you cut off one head two more take its place.....and each head is plotting the destruction of the U.S. from a different angle.
If we want to survive, as a nation, as a republic, we must flush the progressives from both parties, from all government offices, from the media, from positions of instruction, both public schools and universities. The
progressive political philosophy must be rendered ineffectual, laughable, an object of ridicule. The progressive must be excoriated and driven out of any position of authority. Any adherent of such an absurd idea should never be allowed control of more than a gandy stick.
The recent movie, “Downfall” was an excellent movie for many reasons, one of which was the casting that found the actor that played Goebbels. Everytime I watch the movie, the Goebbels character gets creepier..
Citizens United Decision would be in conflict with that mere policy.
This is like Obama signing the Super-SOPA treaty without the consent of the senate.
There’s already an unwritten Fairness Doctrine in place throughout talk radio. It defines “fairness” as giving establishment candidates 10 times more favorable content than Tea Party candidates.
Romney gets 10 every time Gingrich gets 1.
Try not paying your local property taxes for several years and you'll find out REAL quick that "government ownership of property" has already been achieved...
isnt’ that the truth?
Well said. The Left Never Sleeps.
This group (the "Presidential Climate Action Project") is nothing more than an "ivory tower gulag," as you put it. It's an activist policy group, not a governmental organization. Not an election in the world can stop these groups from forming and saying whatever they're going to say (nor should they be stopped - the First Amendment protects even those who want to take away others' First Amendmment rights).
Van Jones. What a surprise.
The free media did a piss-poor job of vetting an unconstitutional presidential candidate, and now they will get unconstitutional restrictions.
Actions do have consequences...
Oh my goodness!
he wants to take foreclosed homes
Next up will be vacation, second and third homes all vacant at some point during ther year.
Then will come homes too large for the number of occupants.
Do you have a link to back up your comment?
Pinging the Agenda 21 folks.
The thread discussion is very much to point, with fellow Freepers discussing in addition to the planned take overof the airwaves, the Communist Agenda and how close that agenda is to being achieved.
If you want to be on or off the Agenda 21 ping list, please notify me by Freepmail. It is a relatively low volume list in which we have been exploring the UN Agenda21 and related topics. We have collected our studies with threads, links, and discussions on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:
The dictator will totally wipe all communication that defiles him and the penalty is death.
Unless the party in question willingly converts to Islam or avocates in public for Islam ...
Whoa. Thy just can’t take a hint, can they?
Goes to show how important it will be to vote in this election (Senate and House seats)... even if it’s Romney... bleh
Yep. Just like salmon who will exert their all to reach their spawning streams, or die trying, the left is always on the march towards their socialist nirvana.
1) Indoctrinate schoolkids.
2) Go after meteorologists who don’t buy into the hoax.
3) Silence dissenters on the airwaves.
