PETE

As for out of control prosecutor Mike Nifong:
- pure Hillary-like ambition?
- mental illness?

I say neither. I say he's got sh*t for brains!

WHAT WAS HE THINKING ????

Ree

Monica,

I can count 3 incidents starting with the firing of Don Imus and Bernard McGuirk.

1 Imus in the Morning taken of Radio and it's simulcast.

2 Bernard McGuirk The Boston Radio Station he was going to guest host for 3 days, is threatened with a Protest.

3 D.L.Hughley stated that Imus told a joke and he didn't think Imus should aplologize...D.L Hughley's show down in Ft Worth was protested...he refused to recant...D.L.Hughley a proponent of Free Speech said Free Speech is a Zero Sum to him.

In New York State, Imus in the Morning was taken off the air, JV and Elvis were fired and Anthony and Opie were suspended supposedly XM isn't regulated by the FCC.

The New York State Airwaves are being Scrubbed, Sanitized. Why? we have a Junior Senator from New York State running for President in 2008 and Shock Jocks and Disc Jockeys get alot of their material from Politics. Wake up America!! The Corporations not the Free Market are deciding who you get to listen to. Someone is trying to control the "message" out of New York State. The only thing is Radio and Television is old Media and the New Media, the Internet can easily go around The Old Guard.

I wrote about this in my blog Don Imus/Shock Jocks, How come Why now Hillbilly's know.

Like Your Free Speech- Thank an American Military Service Person.

Well said Ree, I couldn't agree more. The concept of Free speech is as basic as The Liberty to America. It's why we have a First Amendment in the first the place.

We have to learn to listen to ideas different from our own. Even those we disagree with. Especially those we disagree with.

In 1966, shortly after becoming the first black graduate at ‘Ole Miss’, James Meridith was shot in the back while marching from Memphis to Jackson to encourage voter registration.

The shooting of James Meridith drew hundreds of Civil Rights Activists, both black and white, to finish the march that he began. The march culminated with a rally of fifteen thousand people in front of the Mississippi state capital in Jackson . At that rally two of my heroes spoke, Martin Luther King and Stokey Carmichael.

Dr. King told the crowd of his dream, that one day in Mississippi “justice will become a reality for all of God’s children”

Stokey Carmichael argued that blacks had to “build a power base so strong in this country that we’ll bring [whites] to their knees.”

So many ‘factions’ in our society today have found Stokey’s strategy effective, but to say they win is like saying the playground bully wins every time he gets another kids lunch money.

We can't get to Dr. King's goal By using Mr. Carmichaels methods.

All,

According to Huffington Post when Michelle Malkin Blogged about this same subject...Conservatives are all wrong. This is in response to Michelle's Blog about Talk Radio being under attack by Progressives

Ms. M

what SHOULD be investigated is NOT the "fainess doctrine" but rather an investigation into antitrusts & the fact so few own & are dictating policy of reporting (see Ree comments) on what the American public is SUPPOSE to own, not CORPORATE AMERICA, the airwaves...I do not want to see ANYONE'S opinion or thought CENSORED, limiting my RIGHT to free THOUGHT, CHOICE & SPEECH! BOYCOTTING MSNBC/CBS/media ho's/hil, obama

Ree

There is also this The Plan to Silence Conservatives.

I am guessing the usual suspects are involved in this, my daughter looked at the new bill being proposed "Fairness Doctrine" most of the signers are from the Pacific Coast? and Dennis Kucinich. The Good News, these folks are pretty blatant about their attempts at Censoring whatever they don't want American's to hear and not subtle at all about their techniques in meeting those ends, google Hillary's Hit Man and Hillary's Hit Man Strikes again.

Right and I all I get to hear about, in the daily News Cycle is Paris Hilton's next meal ticket...right now not NBC..subject to change when they can figure out how to do pay her without anyone finding out.

It's not about left right. Black White. Man Woman. Or any of the other things that supposedly divide us. It's about the Corpratocracy controlling the media/message, subverting Democracy and keeping us fighting each other instead of discussing complex problems and finding real answers.

Why do you think Michelle and Jim Hightower are preaching the same message from different soapboxes set on opposite sides of the street.

Their real message is "Ignore the man behind the curtain. These are not the droids your looking for. BUY! BUY! BUY!"

I have listened to WABC out of NYC talk radio for years, and they have given all kinds of hosts chances at getting ratings, which is the bottom line when you provide a free service on the airwaves paid for by advertising. I have concluded that conservatives listen to conservative hosts; liberals listen to conservative hosts, and the rest of the population listens to music!
