I think Barack Obama ought to borrow Brittany Spears’ song as the theme for his administration. Oops…he did it yet again. Caught in the act of trying to infringe on our liberties under the guise of “research” with the FCC government monitor project.
As we reported recently, the FCC was considering placing government monitors across in newsrooms in order to make sure critical information was being reported. After an uproar, this plan was suspended, but Byron York writing for the Washington Examiner reports that the whole scheme was a partisan exercise from the very beginning saying the plan originated among Democrats on the FCC; the commission’s two Republican members didn’t even learn about it until it was well under way.
The FCC enlisted scholars from two big journalism schools, the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for Communication and Democracy, to determine the “critical information needs” about which journalists would be questioned.
