    No need, we have Marc Lloyd

    He was appointed by our president to be the FCC "diversity" czar/aka advisor

    Does he plan to stop your freedom of speech? You bet he does

    FCC 'diversity czar' proves Obama gov't has declared war on America


    Marc Lloyd is notorious for his support of censorship policies. In this 2007 report, Lloyd suggests that conservative broadcasters be fined up to $250 million, with the revenue redirected to National Public Radio, which already receives millions in government funds. He followed up with this report that openly discusses how the Fairness Doctrine can be accomplished without calling it by that name. Lloyd argues for a regulatory scheme on radio and television broadcasters called “localism” and “diversity” to effectively accomplish quotas and viewpoint requirements based on programming content. Simply put, it’s the Fairness Doctrine by another name.

    Also troubling is the fact that Lloyd does not believe that the 1987 repeal of the Fairness Doctrine stripped the FCC of the authority to reinstate it. Rather, he favors an administrative decision by the five unelected FCC commissioners to simply bring the Doctrine back.

    Bottom line, Lloyd’s appointment to a FCC position with direct authority on these issues crystallizes our concerns. Further, Lloyd’s own writings lay out a plan for accomplishing this onerous objective.

    And what is his objective?

    I think in a few links anyone who reads objectively will be able to form an honest opinion?

    My conclusion is that this man wants to stop conservative speech, and all forms of non progressive ideals.

    Diversity? Yeah right

    The FCC needs to be shut down, enough giving the government control of private business.

    Want a bit of irony, since the FCC has been censoring media many parents have been blaming everything that their kids do wrong on media ... odd huh?

    OK, everyone we really need to pay attention to Marc Lloyd

    No need for the fairness doctrine, the administration wants to get rid of any voices of dissent; if this was to happen, would we have our voices heard? Regardless of our politics?

    Only if you would praise the king, and his healthscare scam.

    I cannot believe there are people who are so enamored with Obama that they cannot see what is happening right before their eyes.

    If the FCC had the legal power to take the Fairness Doctrine away, without congressional approval, then they DO have the power to bring it back without congressional approval, no?

    and under the Reagan administration, is what set the precedence for such....in 1987.

    care

    I have a funny suspicion that most of what we see online and on the MSM, is as far as the support for this administration goes. It is operatives and wackos that simply cannot admit that obama is a marxist, a communist symathizer and alinskyite and a hater of America
