Liberal Groups Want FCC to Police Talk Radio, Cable News

From the American Heritage Dictionary “Whine”:
1. To utter a plaintive, high-pitched, protracted sound, as in pain, fear, supplication, or complaint.
2. To complain or protest in a childish fashion.
3. To produce a sustained noise of relatively high pitch: jet engines whining.
Example below. Bold mine.

Liberal Groups Want FCC to Police Talk Radio, Cable News: “A coalition of more than 30 mostly liberal organizations has sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission urging the agency to monitor “hate speech” on talk radio and cable news networks.

The groups assert in the letter that “hate, extremism and misinformation have been on the rise . . . as the media has focused on Arizona’s passage of one of the harshest pieces of anti-Latino legislation in this country’s history.”

The organizations include the Center for Media Justice, the Rainbow Push Coalition, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, and Common Cause.”

“As traditional media have become less diverse and less competitive, they have also grown less responsible and less responsive to the communities that they are supposed to serve,” the letter states.

“In this same atmosphere hate speech thrives, as hate has developed as a profit-model for syndicated radio and cable television programs masquerading as ‘news.’”

The coalition did not mention any specific media outlets.

The groups also argue that the Internet has made it more difficult for the public to separate “the facts from bigotry masquerading as news,” The Hill newspaper reports.

The Internet “gives the illusion that news sources have increased, but in fact there are fewer journalists employed now than ever before,” according to the coalition.

“Moreover, on the Internet, speakers can hide in the cloak of anonymity, emboldened to say things that they may not say in the public eye.

“For these reasons, as the Commission deliberates how the public interest will be served in the digital age, it should consider the extent of hate speech in media, and its effects.”

I AGREE with them 100%! EXCEPT they are not referring to MSNBC and their ilk, The Huffington Post and their ilk, or The New York Times and their ilk.

With “I did not have sex with that woman,” Clinton redefined “sex.” Obama continues to re-write the dictionary with the PC fervor of a jihadist translator as he, for example,redefined the war on terror to overseas contingency operation.

Yet, they remain confused as to why these leftist institutions cannot manage to claim their “owed and due” market share/profitability. For any liberals reading this, “Here’s your sign.” When the “facts from liberalism masquarade as news,” market share and profitability drop. Like a rock. That crashing sound you hear are the footsteps of the electorate coming after you!

If these idiots were not so dangerous, this would be funny.
