Dems 'laying groundwork' to torpedo conservative media

by Bob Unruh
(United States)

News industry heavyweight Fox News could be banished from coverage of American political races under a new strategy being developed by Democrats on the Federal Election Commission.


The group is, by law, half Democrat and half Republican, and Democrats long have bemoaned the fact that they are not in total control to move forward with their restrictions on conservative media, such as Fox.

Now Paul Bedard, the Washington Examiner’s “Washington’s Secrets” columnist, who long has monitored the commission’s agenda, is reporting on an FEC idea to identify media companies with even a tiny bit of foreign ownership and ban them from “covering political races.”

That move, he explained, could affect Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and even the New York Times.

Just this week, the top Democrat on the panel, Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, suggested the commission “begin the process to prohibit companies with foreign ownership as small as 5 percent ‘from funding expenditures, independent expenditures, or electioneering communications.'”

“Given everything we have learned this year, it blinks reality to suggest that … there is no risk of foreign nationals taking advantage of current loopholes to intercede invisibly in American elections,” she wrote. “This is a risk no member of the Federal Election Commission should be willing to tolerate.”

Bedard pointed out that her advocacy for her limits “conceivably” could result in any group reaching her level of foreign ownership being “banned from advocating for a candidate’s election or defeat.”

I think Mr.Putin would be proud of what the commission is doing in it's effort to silence the voice of opposition. After all, he has succeeded in silencing all criticism from opposing parties to his candidacy.
