"First Amendment New Deal," a new "Fairness Doctrine"

I absolutely love this....

President Obama's newly confirmed regulatory czar, Cass Sunstein, drew up a "First Amendment New Deal," a new "Fairness Doctrine" that would include the establishment of a panel of "nonpartisan experts" to ensure "diversity of view" on the airwaves, WND has learned.

Sunstein compared the need for the government to regulate broadcasting to the moral obligation of the U.S. to impose new rules that outlawed segregation.

He goes on to say that this is within the spirit of the 1st Amendment. This document would also require purely commercial stations(probably only ones that disagree with the current governments agenda) to subsudize public or less profitable commercial stations that provide "higher quality programming".

Quite honestly I don't know where to begin with this, other than suggesting you read the entire article. I do however believe I know exactly how this will shake out...
I see anyone who does not agree with the current communist regime, being forced down our throats, being punished finacially and forced to air opinions that they have no desire to pay for. So guess who gets the bounty from this? I think it will be the communist supporters that are trying to get on the Obama gravy train.
