    Default Obama to Directly Control and Decide what is Reported in the News

    Not much will change except maybe at Fox news because the majority of the MSM already shows favoritism to Marxist indoctrination techniques. This is more of a direct control through cameras, direct supervision and spy equipment. This is socialism folks, mandated control of information that gets to the people and mandated belief system through government intimidation and bullying. Enjoy what you voted for, if you voted for Obama.

    "...the Obama Administration has developed a formula of what it believes the free press should cover, and it is going to send government monitors into newsrooms across America to stand over the shoulders of the press as they make editorial decisions."

    It's not too bad until they force you to be homosexual, persecute Christians and tell you what you're not allowed to eat anymore. Then ... not so much.

    Or until the FCC declines to renew your broadcast license for not "serving the community needs".

    1. Do you honestly believe that a man whose entire Administration has made it easier for large corporations, financial institutions and extraction organizations to operate without intervention is a Marxist?

    2. Do you honestly believe that the Obama Administration is creating rules whereby those same large (and utterly capitalist) corporations to become conduits for Marxist education of the multitude?

    3. Do you honestly believe that Americans are actually susceptible to Marxist propaganda, either of its academic or vulgar varieties?

    4. Do you honestly believe that Comcast, Viacom, Google, Yahoo, Fox, Microsoft and Disney are going to simply cede control of editorial or programming content? By what mechanism? According to what enforcement regime?

    5. Do you honestly believe that a single Administration possesses the armed staffers necessary to maintain control over independent, capitalist, competing firms, each of which has political allies, considerable wealth, and foreign positions which are immune to even the most aggressive federal oversight?

    Even if that is so we will always have Al Jazeera!

    Odd that such an earthshaking story can be found only on a handful of crackpot websites.
    One would think that at least a few news organizations would be concerned.

    So the most incompetent president ever somehow wields ultimate power over EVERYTHING. How does that even work?

    None of which precludes an administration trying to influence content via the FCC. It's called regulatory capture and it's already happened to banks and insurance companies. When the government can cost you large sums of money or even shut you down through use of regulatory agencies you damn well do what government tells you. Which is how Bank of America ended up buying Country Wide and Wells Fargo ended up taking TARP money they didn't need and had to pay it back with interest.

    How ironic you will turn to the press when the control of the press by Obama is the original problem noted in the OP.
