Maybe journalists will begin doing their job…just before there is no job left to do

Will journalists wake up in time to save journalism from Obama’s FTC?

Updated: just saw this… Obama’s FTC plan to reinvent America’s news media

Related: Ben Scott joins Obama administration.  Who is Ben Scott?  I need to go play with my kids so search for yourself, but he’s another radical marxist.  Duh.  In short, he wants huge government regulation of the media.  I’m sure we have nothing to worry about with this administration.  Nah, never.  Try, Congress, but Obama would NEVER let that happen.  Nope. Not this president.  Granted he pontificated recently (and oh so eloquently!) at the dangers of Americans having too much information right at their fingertips, that so much information is a “distraction,” but surely the most transparent and open administration EVAH can handle a little criticism.  This administration loves the press in all forms. Obama welcomes the challenge of contrary views as an opportunity to clarify and amplify his own, especially in press conferences! He would never try to silence any form of media.  God, racist wingnuts are soooooo paranoid!

Anyway, here’s a few clues to get you on your way with Obama’s newest advisor, Ben Scott…

Ben Scott was a graduate student at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign when he co-authored a piece with McChesney for the Monthly Review on the problems of “capitalist journalism.” He and McChesney also co-authored Our Unfree Press: 100 Years of Radical Media Criticism. Scott would go on to serve as a legislative fellow for then-Representative and open socialist Bernie Sanders and then become the policy director for Free Press.  The contributors to Monthly Review include former Weather Underground terrorist Bernardine Dohrn; Marilyn Buck, another former Weather Underground member; convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal; Bill Fletcher, Jr., a founder of Progressives for Obama; and Chomsky.  In a piece titled, “Homeland Imperialism: Fear and Resistance,” Dohrn wrote of the “robust and unified resistance to imperialism” after the terrorist attacks of 9/11.


Scott authored a book, “The Future of Media,” which was edited by the founder of Free Press, Robert W. McChesney.  McChesney is an avowed Marxist who has recommended capitalism be dismantled.  He is a professor at the University of Illinois and former editor of the Marxist journal Monthly Review. … The board of Free Press has included a slew of radicals, such as Obama’s former “green jobs” czar Van Jones, who resigned after it was exposed he founded a communist organization. … Free Press published a study advocating the development of a “world class” government-run media system in the U.S. Now the group is pushing a new organization,, that advocates the downfall of “big media” and the creation of new media to “promote local ownership, amplify minority voices, support quality [ie. leftist] journalism, and bring local artists, voices and viewpoints to the airwaves.”
