FROM David Martin, Executive Vice President MEDIA RESEARCH CENTER MARCH 11, 2009 Lee S, The Senate just passed the Durbin Amendment – the “Durbin Censorship Doctrine” — which actually poses a far greater threat to our free speech rights than even the “Fairness” Doctrine because it creates a dangerous new power the FCC can use to silence talk radio. In light of this new threat to free speech, the Media Research Center is rallying our team for an emergency petition delivery next week! Lee S, after the Senate passed the Broadcaster Freedom Act by a vote of 87-11, the liberal media rushed to declare the Fairness Doctrine dead.
What they didn’t report in the passing of the “Durbin Censorship Doctrine” was that it reinforces in law already existing FCC regulatory powers to silence conservative speech – and creates a treacherous new way for the government censors to do so! Instead, the liberal media would have you believe that the Fairness Doctrine is dead—that the threat against conservative talk has been ended once and for all. Nothing could be further from the truth! MRC founder Brent Bozell just addressed members of our Free Speech Alliance and spoke exclusively about this dangerous new threat to our Free Speech Rights. To listen, go here. http://www.mrcaction.org/517/petition.asp?Ref_ID=2248&PID;=18...
A Stealth Attack on Your Free Speech Rights!Lee S, the ”Durbin Censorship Doctrine” requires the FCC to “take actions to encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership.” Upon closer look, this “stealth” attack on Free Speech Rights is far more insidious because it empowers the government to censor and control the airwaves in an insidious new way. In other words, the ”Durbin Censorship Doctrine” poses a much greater danger to our free speech rights because it expands the FCC censorship threat in ways we never before imagined!
Your Efforts More Important Than Ever Given what just took place on Capitol Hill, there is little doubt in my mind that we are headed for a showdown over our Free Speech Rights. Thank you so much for signing the petition. But the threat is dire — so over the next five days I am urging EVERY ONE to take fast action by alerting friends and family to the real truth about our Free Speech Rights coming under assault. Urge them to join with you in defending this God-given right by clicking below. Now that the liberals in Washington have a yet another new way to muzzle conservative and Christian radio, we anticipate they will waste little time to make this a reality. That’s why it’s imperative that we move boldly to protect our Free Speech Rights by mobilizing as many grassroots Americans as we can in the days ahead.
We cannot allow this backdoor assault to go unchallenged! That’s why I am counting on you to help me rally an additional 20,000 citizen signers of our Free Speech Alliance petition over these next few days leading to our delivery!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE TODAY PLEASE!!!
PLEASE ALSO WRITE YOUR REPS HERE TODAY AS WELL
Pass this on if you care about free speech. It may be your ideas that are censored next.
