FCC Pulls the Plug on its Controversial “Study” and Pledges not to Snoop in American Newsrooms

The FCC has changed its mind and decided to allow Freedom of the Press. Just the other day “Wait Til You Hear This” and other sources told you of the FCC’s proposal to place government “monitors” not only in broadcast media newsrooms, but also inside newspapers. It was feared research questions would morph into government pressure to control the news. The public outcry was tremendous. So much for that idea, at least for now.

Why is the Obama Administration Putting Government Monitors in Newsrooms?


The FCC has proposed a plan to send “researchers” into news rooms across the country to find out how reporters, editors and station owners decide what stories to run. The agency supposedly wants to learn how they cover “critical information, which is apparently shorthand for the kind of stories the government thinks should be featured. Don’t ask how the broadcast oriented FCC would extend its reach to newspapers, but that’s part of the plan. It doesn’t take much imagination to see questioning morph into pressuring.
