: If you’re by a radio now (9:30a ET), I’ll be on Air America’s Unfiltered on the FCC.
Don’t have to be by a radio.
Excellent segment, thanx for your work…
Excellent ‘appearance’ on Unfiltered. Thank you for the FOIA work. Good to hear someone taking on the moral watchguards.
All the best,
Enjoyed your segment. Ahh, but what about V-Chips? They are in all the new TV’s wasn’t this supposed to solve this problem? And didn’t Gore invent that too? :)
Oh, man. I missed it by ten minutes. :-(
I caught the last minute of the segment and heard that you filed a FOI for the investigative materials associated with a Fox show. To round out that investigation, you should file for the same report on the Oprah Winfrey “teen Sex” segments. I know that there had to have been thousands of complaints because Stern had suggested people complain and see what happens. I personally sent in a complaint. This would illustrate the favoritism and the hypocrisy.
Heard most of your spot and thought you did a good job. I consider myself mostly conservative, but find myself flipping around the radio dial to hear different points of view, although I find it annoying to be consistently belittled for my Christian beliefs, but that’s another topic.
While I completely agree that three people influencing the FCC regarding the FOX show is over the top, would you agree that one little kid’s dad can take “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance for the entire country?
To Mr. Morgan,
As far as I know “Under God” was not taken out of the pledge. The point is why did the FCC lie and tell us that there were close to 100 complaints when it was generated by 3 individuals. Interestingly enough, the free market spoke and this show is off the air for lack of viewers. Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey broadcasts a show on teen sex and discusses “tossed salads” which is oral to anal sex, and rainbows where a young lady gives oral sex with different shades of lipstick to create a rainbow on the male penis. Not one dollar was fined against her! Mr. Powell said he couldn’t go after her because she was “Beloved”. Mr. Powell appointing himself national censor is out of bounds.
Meanwhile media consolidation, and the loss of billions in computer grants that were lost under Powells watch are being ignored.
I have no argument with anything you said. I wonder why Clinton appointed Powell?
My point about the pledge is how one person (or 3 people) shouldn’t dictate anything.
Bush appointed him chair of the FCC, though..
Gotta get those half-truths in, eh Tom?
Sorry Andrew. To be fair, Powell only became an FCC Commissioner in 1997, when Clinton was President. Bush then appointed Powell Chairman in January 2001.
Thanks for stated clarification.
