Failure to Communications

Uh oh. “Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts announced Monday that he will chair a subcommittee hearing on the future of journalism.”

“An independent news media is vital to our democracy,” Kerry, the chairman of the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, and the Internet, said in a statement Monday evening. “The history of our Republic is inextricably linked to the narrative of our free and independent press, yet today, America’s newspapers are struggling just to stay afloat. I called this hearing to directly address a problem that for too long has had us turning the other way. Whatever the model for the future, we must do all we can to ensure a diverse and independent news media endures.”

Sounds bad, doesn’t it? When John Kerry is in charge of saving journalism, we hacks really are in trouble.

“On April 1 of this year, Sens. Rockefeller, Snowe, Bayh and Nelson introduced bills S. 773 and S.778, collectively called the Cybersecurity Act, which would give President Obama dictatorial power over the Internet during a time of national crisis or emergency.”

“President Obama’s choice to lead the powerful Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs is none other than Cass Sunstein, a radical Harvard law professor and supporter of the Fairness Doctrine for the Internet.”
