Justice Group Warns of Obama Plan to Put Government Monitors in Newsrooms
Quote:The American Center for Law and Justice is warning of an Obama administration plan to place government monitors in newsrooms via an FCC proposal that could turn every major news network and newspaper into little more than a state media mouthpiece.

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai recently lifted the lid on a shocking White House proposal entitled 'Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs' that would dispatch researchers from the federal agency "to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run."

According to Pai, the program is about "pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories." In other words - the fairness doctrine on steroids.

"That’s right, the Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and it is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions," writes the ACLJ's Matthew Clark, noting that the plan would also extend to newspapers, which the FCC doesn't even have any business being involved with.

The United States' world ranking in terms of freedom of the press also recently fell to number 46, below the likes of South Africa, Slovenia and Lithuania.

"Every major repressive regime of the modern era has begun with an attempt to control and intimidate the press," warns Clark, adding, "It’s hard to imaging anything more brazenly Orwellian than government monitors in newsrooms."

If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
