Another item related to freedom of speech

    I really have no love for Don Imus, but the day before, on Apr. 13, WorldNetDaily reported that since radio talk-show host Don Imus has been banished, a liberal partisan media watchdog group headed by David Brock says it’s time to clean up the rest of talk radio. Next in the crosshairs for alleged expressions of "bigotry and hate speech targeting, among other characteristics, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion and ethnicity" according to Media Matters for America, are Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, John Gibson and Michael Smerconish. In a 6,000-word report, Media Matters documents what it perceives as the case against the talk-radio hosts. Brock’s Media Matters was "developed" with help from the Center for American Progress, funded by billionaire George Soros, a major financial backer of the Democratic Party and allied far-left groups such as MoveOn.org. Brock, who was formerly of the conservative American Spectator but jumped ship to the other side, is backing a "Renew the Fairness Doctrine" campaign to have the Federal Communications Commission monitor and regulate talk radio. His group is "dedicated to correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media." Since the liberals have found little appetite for their talk radio, they want to engage in "ethnic cleansing" to remove conservatives from the airwaves. In contrast, the Associated Press reported that former Arkansas governor and Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says the racist comments that led to broadcaster Don Imus’ firing means other media figures could also be out of a job. The frequent Imus guest said the radio host’s description of the Rutgers women’s basketball team as "nappy headed hos" was inexcusable and wrong. But Huckabee says other celebrities have also made offensive comments. He gives as examples Rosie O’Donnell and Bill Maher. What’s sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander!
