Judge Napolitano Clobbers FCC’s Plan To Spy On Newsrooms: If They Show Up Here, ‘Throw Them Out!’

 

 

” An upcoming study by the Federal Communication Commission that would put government agents in our nation’s newsrooms has Americans up in arms. The FCC says that the study, called the Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,intends to observe how news outlets select and prioritize stories, as well as stations’ target markets, their “perceived station bias,” and their “perceived percent of news dedicated to each of the ‘critical information needs’ in a community.”

  Freedom of the press is a vital part of our nation’s foundation and has always been a source of pride for Americans. In recent years, however, that freedom has begun to dissipate; on the World Press Freedom Index, the United States just dropped to 46th, down 13 spots since 2012.”
