This appears to impose a “Fairness Doctrine” and would pose an ominous threat to conservative speech that would empower the Obama administration to control the dissemination of information while imposing punitive taxes on ideological opponents. I say “NO!” to Obama’s efforts to censor, regulate, tax and control our free speech! In third world nations, the left would send troops or rioters to TV stations and newspapers to seize complete control of the media. Here, it appears that it is done with the FCC and FTC. The FTC wants to tax conservative speech and then use our tax dollars to both train and pay the salaries of the liberal media! What next? Perhaps to pay for our own gag rags!
