Barack Obama's "green-jobs czar," civil rights attorney Van Jones, co-founder of the African-American political organization Color of Change, may be trying to remove financial support from Glen Beck's widely popular TV program. Link to Newsmax: http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/beck_obama_boycott_fox/2009/08/13/247700.html?s=al&promo_code=856B-1 Any successful action such as this could substantially reduce Beck's influence as a media personality.
Many people are of the opinion that Obama is trying to eliminate the influence of conservative media personalities such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glen Beck by appointing various Czars and heads of Federal agencies that can use their regulatory power over broadcasters and their influence with corporations that advertise. This scenario could be presently unfolding. After all, judging from news content, the major media, with the exception of FOX News and a very few others, is almost totally under Obama Administration control right now!
News bias toward liberal causes could be ideologically driven to some extent but the obvious saturation of liberal talking points connected with the Tea Party demonstrations and the almost complete absence of media coverage favorable to the ordinary citizens who show up at these events is strong evidence that control of the media by liberals and the administration is alive and well!
The talk of reinstating the Fairness Doctrine, a practice that in the opinion of many would eliminate conservative radio talk radio shows such as Limbaugh's and Hannity's has been passed back and forth in the news and is clearly meant to be a threat. According to the referenced Newsmax article, Presidential "green-jobs czar," Van Jones has long been a supporter of the Fairness Doctrine. When analyzing Obama's appointments many believe they are too race and left wing oriented and certain individuals have been appointed not to benefit the American people as a whole but instead to:
Function solely as agents of Obama's radical policies.
2. Oversee the punishment of those who oppose them.
3. Transform the United States into a socialist form of government.
4. Gain total and complete control over the American people and the outcome of elections.
it may be a fact that "to the victor belong the spoils" there are
indications that the Obama Administration has taken this concept and its
associated liabilities, incompetence and corruption, to a more pervasive level.
