[Vanity] Do You Think That the FCC has Been Bias Towards Democrat Media Applicants?

Posted on 08/02/2013 7:41:10 PM PDT by cradle of freedom

It seems that most of the television media is owned by liberals. Is this a coincidence or can it be that Democrats have controlled the FCC for years and have given licenses to liberals while rejecting conservatives?

Absolutely. One method has been the blatant Congressional-mandated use of affirmative action in awarding broadcast licenses, for everyone except white males. These are usually afterward sold to the big chains, eg, the 50,000 bucks invested in lawyers and licensing fees becomes a million when its sold following a three year waiting period.

And the beat goes on.

Ain't no "maybe" about it.

Coincidence.

Liberal TV is for entertainment at the basest level possible.

I think that conservatives like to complain about liberal media bias.

Liberals like to do something to take over media.

Conservatives by and large have other things to do. Not liberals.

If we want to fight back and win, we need to stop just complaining, and actually fight back.

Just saying.

Not advocating real fighting mind you, but you get my point.

With the advent of civil service unions the whole government has been corrupted. Unions elect democrats and they do all the can to protect them. Democrats support unions and do all they can to protect them. For all practical purposes they are one and the same.
We must get rid of the government unions if we are ever to regain control of the government.

I would like to see some conservatives with money start investing in good quality media. For instance, I had a thought about a women’s radio program featuring two women who would talk about things that interest women and would also include some political talk—Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Concerned Women for America, etc. etc.

I think this would attract a lot of women who are at home and want a “companion” while they are doing their housework. It wouldn’t be a heavy duty political program but would have some political talk peppered into the program along with cooking, child rearing, health, money, humor, music. The values would be normal American values not the poluted garbage that they have on the View and just about everything else that is on the media.

The fact of the matter is - liberals and far left liberals have infected every part of our government and have turned the country into an instrument of their ideology. Every agency, every regulation, now reflects what the left wing wants this country to be. Liberalism has been institutionalized and the Pubbies have let it happen. It's time for a serious change.

Does the sun rise in the east and set in the west? Does the moon come out at night? Do polar bears poop in the snow? Is water wet?

Take your pick, they all lead to the same answer!

Conservative TV might give us patriotic programming based on traditional values. Children's TV is particularly trashy. Hardly ever see Mother Goose, old-fashioned fairy tales or historical material.

Don’t they know that liberal media is destined for failure?

People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty and justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary. - Adam Smith, Wealth of Nations (Book I, Ch 10)
It is particularly true of "People of the trade” of journalism that it is impossible to keep them from talking to each other. And the more so of the wire services, which are nothing else but communicators to/among journalists. Thus, the tendency of journalists to conspire against the public should be considered an inherent problem of democratic governance.
It is only to be expected that journalists will engage in propaganda which makes the public at large seem ignorant, gullible, prejudiced, and/or stupid compared to journalists and to politicians who enthusiastically go along to get along with journalists. And equally, it is only to be expected that journalists would award such politicians flattering labels, and apply derisive ones to those who have regard for principles other than getting along with journalists.
