Thought police aggressively on patrol

Free Speech Censorship First Amendment 1stby Charles Krauthammer

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy.

The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

The proper word for that attitude is totalitarian. It declares certain controversies over and visits serious consequences — from social ostracism to vocational defenestration — upon those who refuse to be silenced. [Read more...]

The FEC’s plan to police the newsroom

Media Bias - ObamaWhy is the agency studying ‘perceived station bias’ and asking about coverage choices?

by Ajit Pai

News organizations often disagree about what Americans need to know. MSNBC, for example, apparently believes that traffic in Fort Lee, N.J., is the crisis of our time. Fox News, on the other hand, chooses to cover the September 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi more heavily than other networks. The American people, for their part, disagree about what they want to watch.

But everyone should agree on this: The government has no place pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.

Unfortunately, the Federal Communications Commission, where I am a commissioner, does not agree. Last May the FCC proposed an initiative to thrust the federal government into newsrooms across the country. With its “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs,” or CIN, the agency plans to send researchers to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run. A field test in Columbia, S.C., is scheduled to begin this spring. [Read more...]

So, Mr. President, is Egypt an Ally or Not?

Last night Barack Obama Media Lap Dogwas asked about whether Egypt was still an ally of America. His response was pretty clear: “I don’t think we would consider [Egypt] an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy.”

But today, the Obama Administration backed away from that statement and provided an alternative answer or a “clarification.”

Wasn’t Obama just boasting that he is very careful and practiced in matters of foreign policy? Wasn’t it Obama who said Romney “seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later”?

Dishonest Political Fact Checkers and the Pinocchio Press

by James Tarantopinocchio1

In the 19th-century fairy tale “The Adventures of Pinocchio,” the eponymous protagonist is a wooden puppet who dreams of becoming an actual boy. We suppose people who work as fact checkers have long dreamed of becoming writers and editors, who enjoy, respectively, the glory and the power in journalism. [Read more...]

Stealing Elections and Silencing the Opposition

by George Landrith

Throughout history, political extremists have attacked their opponents seeking to silence and suppress those with whom they disagree. Some form of bullying is almost always their chief weapon. These extremists invariably try to undermine democracy itself and silence their opposition. This truth has been sadly evident in recent extremist attacks by Van Jones and his group, Color of Change, on the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). [Read more...]

“Scientific” Political Correctness through the Ages

by George LandrithGlobal-Climate-Change3

Political correctness is not a modern phenomena. Those who want to control the terms of debate and the minds of the masses have used political correctness throughout the Ages — albeit by different names — to stop debate and demand that everyone agree with their “consensus view.” For example, Galileo Galilei, who lived more than 400 years ago and is widely viewed as the father of modern science, fought against political correctness and lost — at least during his lifetime. His improvements to the telescope permitted him to disprove the almost universally held belief that the Earth was the center of the Universe. [Read more...]
