Why bother with 47 pages? The entire FTC concept can be summed up with a single word: "Pravda". This entire proposal is nothing more than a power grab by the Federal Government to attempt to take control of the media and turn it into a propaganda outlet. It is a violation of the Constitution, a violation of the founding principles of our country, and a violation of common decency and sense! I find it absolutely vile that anything of this nature could EVER be considered by anyone in our government. Not only should the proposers of this monstrosity be fired, they should be run out of the country on a rail! This proposal should be dropped immediately, with profuse apologies to every American citizen made by the head of the FTC and his entire staff. You should all be ashamed.
