Remember when the MSM was the only show in town?
And it was all liberalism, all the time?
Then, Democrats didn’t tell us that we had to go read the National Review, or the Weekly Standard, or Human Events. Democrats were not talking about FORCING people to send us to conservative sources so we could get a balanced view of things.
But now that conservative media has blossomed in all the hidden cracks of the media world – on scratchy, low budget AM radio, on low cost blogs and so forth, suddenly, the government is talking about FORCING them to link to other places with the opposite view.
As if you couldn’t go find opposing views by yourself. All you have to do is turn on NPR, the major networks, CNN, MSNBC, etc, and you are blasted with it. But suddenly, now that the media is free and open, they are trying to undercut that freedom.
Here is Cass Sunstein, talking as if he was a character out of Orwell’s 1984. (WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, and IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH). Get this: He actually says “The word voluntary is a little complicated”
