“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; our ability to do our work here in Congress, and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and more importantly, in their future.” Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV)
1. FoxNews and MSNBC are not on the airwaves, consequently the FCC has no jurisdiction.
2. Senator Jay Rockefeller must have missed at least part of the First Amendment to the Constitution, not to mention the entire Constitution itself.
What are the people of West Virginia thinking electing a clown like Rockefeller? He is right, without a press that is able to publish the truth, the Federal Government’s big-government, power-hungry politicians, would be able to ‘get away’ with a lot more. The First Amendment protects the country against the likes of Rockefeller.
