FCC Commissioner Michael Copps Thinks Government Should Control Media Polisy Because of FOX News

Censorship (Opposing Viewpoints)

Team Obama can't win at the ballot box so they are moving to censor their political opponents.
(The Hill)- Federal Communications Commissioner Michael Copps made a case for a government hand in media policy in a speech to the FCBA on Tuesday.

“The commission can act now. It should have acted on the media before now. I am disappointed that it has not,” he said.

The decline of “real journalism” justifies federal involvement, according to Copps. ”The news is suffering from a bad case of substance abuse,” he said.

The Democratic commissioner pointed to Fox News’ Bernie Goldberg and Bill O’Reilly as examples of the problem with today’s media landscape, saying the pair has taken his own words out of context.
