    The American Spectator : AmSpecBlog : Al Sharpton Helping FCC Design Rush Limbaugh 'Free Speech' Show Trials

    Public hearings on "offending people" in the media? There goes comedy.

    Oh brother. :eek:

    I wish both of them would just shut up. :lol:

    I find it hard to believe that people listen to Sharpton.

    He got a sit down with the FCC. Mark Lloyd anyone?

    Rational people can dismiss Sharpton. But who can say these Obama appointees are rational?

    News flash, Al -- there is no right to not be offended. You don't like it? Change the station. You can only decide what you will see and hear. You don't get to make that decision for others.

    My money is on Rush and free speech. Sharpton is still pissed over the "magic negro" comments.

    Fascists and Totalitarian types always say something like this eventually: "I believe in the 1st Amendment and the Right of Free Speech but..."
