New guidelines on how the Justice Department can monitor the media will be published in the next coming weeks, Attorney General Eric Holder said at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday.

How about not at all.
No that doesn’t sound like a headline from 1955 Pravda, not at all.
Just who do they consider the media?
Just who do they consider the media?
Amen to that! The media should be monitored by the public and criminal activity by the FBI.
Exactly, and remember the Congress giving Obama power to monitor the internet.
I’m sure the new rules will be applied across the board to critics, and especially Fox News....this is not good.
The DOJ *needs* to monitor the media...?
I have been censored ONE time at FR —at the beginning of BHO’s first term, when I asked if an African elected man had even ONE time gone on to NOT act as a despot, and I got just TWO good suggestions.
How is THIS behavior not that of an African despot?
WE ARE HEADED TO A BAD PLACE.
The bastard is up to a new bit of *no good* again, as always.
This will take censorship to a whole new level....violating our 1st Amendment rights, no doubt.
Bad news here!
Mao was an African?
“Where the 2nd Amendment goes, the 1st Amendment swiftly follows.”
We are seeing it made plain to us, now.
I don’t understand why they need to monitor the MSM at all other than for management evaluations to ensure they are adhering to the party line.
Does this mean they will have to start kissing Obama and Holder’s ass three times a day instead of just two?
How about like everyone else? Newspapers, TV and the Internet.
Not good enough? Tough shite.
Oh come on, Eric. You’ve already got the reports from Ed Snowden that details your surveillance.
The way our freedoms are being removed, it wouldn't surprise me to see this forum monitored by Holder's men and posts removed and posters tracked down and charged with whatever criminal charge Holder makes up.
The Ministry of Media is not pleased.
The media needs to do an about face and expose everything they know about BO and Holder and quit propping them up. This way, impeachment proceedings would be supported and we could get rid of them before they clamp down on the media—I know-wishful thinking. They aren’t that smart.
Liberals believe “journalists” are exempt. In other words, they’ll say “Fox News, Hannity, Limbaugh are is not news outlets so the government should be able to censure them.” I know a liberal with a masters’ in history who said this. This guy believes msnbc IS a news outlet.
Congress isn't doing it - the Justice Department and specifically Eric Holder is - and that will be just peachy with the spineless Pub's in DC.
I’ll have to read Pravda for the truth, how ironic.
Rod Serling would love how Pravda is more honest than our enemedia. This is truly the Twilight Zone.
Did you parse that statement well?
Are you kidding me? Why do they get pissed off when we call them Nazis and commies? The government is going to start monitoring the media? I wonder how the media feels about that since they got these idiots elected.
S M B W D, E H
Just remember this, whether a person gets all A's or all D's, the degree says the same thing.
LOTS of people with degrees who are blooming idiots.
Several years ago, while I was in school, I made a sarcastic post on FR. I was reported to the university police as a member of a white supremacist organization who was planning on killing muslims. Whoever reported me saw my university email addy in my FR info and contacted the administration and university police. The police had a full investigation and I was interogated for hours. I was worried that I was going to be thrown out of school. But, they did not.
holder’s justice dept is that of a f-ing banana republic.
Obammy and holder belong in Leavenworth
How come every Gaw-damned thing I hear come out of Holders mouth sounds like it would sound best in its’ original German?
They're pretty cool with it.
It's *their* side that's going full-Nazi.
A rectal thermometer has a lot of degrees.
But the Times is run by women - women who wants to compromise, get along and have ‘consensus’. The biggest story of the decade will be ignored until it's too late.
Thank God for the AP and FOXNews...
Now, if only the media would respond with its own guidelines for monitoring the Justice Department.
“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.”
It didn’t that the Justice Department “shall make no law”
I reposted your whole response as that is exactly what I think will happen and it's already happened to you. Once Holder puts his new “rules” in, either those rules will help him get to conservatives to shut them up or he will ignore those rules and do what he wants anyway. He won't zero in on liberal websites because they are his kind, but any other group will be suspect as “terrorists” or “threatening”. Our free speech is being attacked and yours certainly was.
Any speech, spoken or written, on radio, internet, TV, ham radio, chat room, email, or to your neighbor. Any image, graphic, drawing or other form of visual representation that is placed outside your house via internet, posters, placards etc in any of the usual media or sign holding etc.
If you whisper something in your closet you’re good. As long as no one is recording it.
In Leavenworth? Only while waiting until the sentence is carried out.
The mysterious heart attacks and car accidents are supposed to get people to agree to be monitored.
So it’s gonna be stifling is what you are saying. Oy veh , again.
I lived through the Fairness Doctrine, when talk radio was so boring until 1987. Now they want Net Neutrality, which is just another name....and now this nonsense.
I think I get it.
I think they just want to kill millions of us and are getting frustrated since so many Americans are (heavily) armed.
So they’re trying to do whatever they can do. Knowing that once they cross a certain line, whatever that line may be, the reaction will not be to their liking.
yep, for the lot of em.
Now he is going to commute the sentences of prisoners with low level sentences that are long, for mostly drugs. There were 8 commuted last year by him. I don’t necessarily disagree with this, but it should not be the Pres who decided who gets clemency due to his former judgments of such magnitude.
