FEC Chairman warns some in Obama Regime seek regulation of conservative media

The far left seems to illustrate that they can't win a debate over ideas without insuring that the other side that opposes those ideas is not heard. Many on the left, including some in the Regime of President Barack Obama, would love to regulate or censor conservative media outlets to limit exposure or access to ideas presented by those media outlets. FEC chairman Lee E. Goodman warns that some on the current Federal Election Commission, which regulations political organizations and campaigns of candidates for public office, want conservative-leaning news outlets to be regulated like political action c.

“I think that there are impulses in the government every day to second guess and look into the editorial decisions of conservative publishers,” said Goodman in a recent interview, “The right has begun to break the left’s media monopoly, particularly through new media outlets like the internet, and I sense that some on the left are starting to rethink the breadth of the media exemption and internet communications.”

Goodman cited the success of web sites like the Drudge Report, and noted how they can “compete with the big boys” in breaking news stories. The Drudge Report first rose to success in the late 1990s when it was the first news outlet to break news of President Clinton having an affair with White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. Goodman stressed the need to keep the media free from political regulation, expecially the media that is growing via the internet.

The Washington Examiner reported on this issue, “But Goodman cited several examples where the FEC has considered regulating conservative media, including Sean Hannity's radio show and Citizens United's movie division. Those efforts to lift the media exemption died in split votes at the politically evenly divided board, often with Democrats seeking regulation.”

Goodman called for fairness in not regulating conservative or any other media, saying, “Truth be told, I want conservative media to have the same exemption as all other media.”
