Taking upon itself of the taking upon itself the task of deciding what news the public needs to know. Verses the news the public wants to hear. The agency will conduct a quote general population survey on quote the world quote. Measure. Community members actual and perceived critical information -- So so you may have certain you may believe that you have certain information needs but. Only the government can measure your actual. Critical information it's got that. What you think perceive you need to know is different from what the government says you need to now. Next the FCC will send monitors to news rooms across the country -- this was written before they backed off sort. To ask questions regarding the philosophy of the news room inquire about possible conflicts between reporters and their bosses and even determine how much influence at each individual has in deciding what to reports. Are we not less than a year removed from an -- and the IRS apology for inquiring about the internal workings of conservative groups. Last week FCC commissioner Egypt -- who believes the government has no role what our certain stories covered what a radical on. Disclosed in a Wall Street Journal op Ed the existence of the new FCC plan the world ostensibly spivey. How media organizations report the news. The road map to censorship is clear expect this study to show that some news organizations are felt failing to cover the write stories thus failing to give the people what they. Need. Then the FCC which owns the airwaves were proposed to sweep swoop in and fix the quarter import market failure. By making sure that Americans learn what they quote unquote need to learn regardless of their own preferences. And what does the FCC prioritize of the list is any indication. If prior prior to rise prior to -- is the environment far above the weather. While war newspaper barely makes a list of west as a Republican president. Which is we have a countdown to 5000. Deaths. And again some people say and it it appears that what -- this would do would give them idea -- pretense to what straw poll licenses from. People they don't like. And give them the people they don't they do like -- -- and you know to increase the diversity. Of the broadcast ownership. You know so and we've seen this before I mean that you sought a channel seven back in the 1980s you know when.

He wants the same thing but he's gone a little Floyd you're on America because it was. Skillful and about how to say no you won't duel but we've got to stand firm we apathy about the Tea Party in colder. I thought she made a mistake when she said. Vote for sure -- that Republican -- -- She said that I might show go over and over again don't let what she bats her that your belief -- have been pretty steadfast in saying that. But I mean a thing as the shot that Republicans a lot of a lot of them and I optimists we got to our product. Increased sleep -- the -- of the Tea Party I don't exactly. It would it would be nice though you know to have lead today -- compared to who's there would be nice to have Mike Castle in Delaware it would be nice to have -- are as bad as he was in Indiana -- -- -- Molly it would be nice to have somebody other than Akins. Instead of -- You know I mean that the key part of the Tea Party did lose those races I mean there's ye can't you can't dispute that. I mean it's great to have it's great to have but crews and and and Paul and Lee and -- McDaniel can be -- that'll be a -- a couple of that'll be at Tea Party seat for sure. If stockman can be cornyn of Texas that'll be -- Tea Party. It's -- that more Tea Party people but you don't wanna take a chance that's that's the point I think GM was making his Macon. 18774694322.

The Tea Party will never appeal to mainstream America says -- seven they are nothing more than a bunch of sixty year old -- bitching about the government there's no demographics. Within the Tea Party. Really OK so solidly the way to appeal to the the -- American demographic is too. Is to war raise the minimum wage so that they'll get fired in the they can go on welfare. And not stage and a stay at home with their kids that's the way to appeal to the the real to the real America okay. Yeah by the way to -- what just so -- just texted me this and reminds me.
