Speaker Pelosi Backs Senate Amendment to Regulate Talk Radio

( – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told on Thursday that she supports an amendment to a Senate bill that would force the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to “take actions to encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership and to ensure that broadcast station licenses are used in the public interest.”

The amendment’s language is viewed by many media experts as a means to regulate conservative talk radio, particularly popular programs such as the Rush Limbaugh Show and the Sean Hannity Show, among many others.

This isn't socialism, this is the outright communistic shutting down of free speech. Americans should watch this carefully and do everything in their power to hound those who will be voting on any version of the "fairness" doctrine. They're chipping away at our freedoms and many are sleeping through the process. How do we reach the mind-numb dummies out there who will one day shriek when Nancy Pelosi and friends have their full way?
