No Government Monitors in Newsrooms

The Obama Administration is seeking to put monitors in the newsrooms of every major media outlet in the country.

One FCC commissioner says he fears these monitors would be used in “pressuring media organizations into covering certain stories.”

It’s exactly as dangerous as it sounds, and it could be used to cripple free speech and freedom of the press in America.

We cannot allow this Administration to trample the First Amendment. Speak out now before it’s too late.

Petition to Stop the Obama FCC’s Free Speech Monitors

To: President Obama and the Federal Communication Commission

The federal government has no place putting monitors in America’s newsrooms. Stop this unconstitutional assault on free speech and freedom of the press.

Road Block in the Way of Justice

By Matthew Clark1414174262103

The fight for justice is never the easy road, and it doesn’t always win the first round. Yesterday a federal district court dismissed two lawsuits (at least a majority of the claims) brought on behalf of conservative groups who were targeted by the IRS. Unfortunately, the court’s ruling is based on...
