Most do not know who these "czars" are because they are not accountable to anyone in the electorate, or Congress. They get no coverage by the MSM because ANYTHING our current president does is OK by them. Like Bernie says.....they have a slobbering love affair with this man. So much so, it makes reasonable people of both sides nauseous.

Goldberg tells it like it really is.

"Fairness?" Not on TV.

It's great all these czars get their spots without any vetting process. Cabinet positions have to be given a thumbs up by congress while these czars just get to plop right in. So one of his czars had to resign
can't stand the heat... The love affair with Chavez is funny, but nobody on the left loves N. Korea's little psycho why is that? Talk about cherry picking

Actually, Rattner (car czar), the "tech czar," and a couple of others resigned shortly after their appointments.

Couldn't stand the heat.

More is coming.

On topic, Mark Lloyd would NEVER be able to do what is being imagined by Beck and his followers. It would simply never flush in America. Our First Amendment rights are to precious to us, whether left or right. He may wish he could do this, but there's simply no way. It's a suggestion that Beck will be pushing and people will be freaking out about, but we'd never let it happen. None of us.

Really? Never flush you say? Mark Lloyd aside, I'm curious to know what you think about the current attack on Fox news and the administrations clear message that other media outlets better not pick up stories that Fox breaks or they too will be ignored. This IS a freedom of the press situation and the liberal networks that got warm and fuzzy when Obama would speak during the campaign are very MUCH letting him get away with this.

The liberals that were screaming bloody murder when they felt GWB was stepping on their civil liberties are now not just silent on Obama's attack of Fox, they are ignoring that it violates freedom of the press and they are actually applauding it!!!

I think the overall plan here comes down to, noone is listening to the left wing shows on the radio. The conservative and libertarian shows are kicking thier collectives arses all over the place. The reasson noone listens to them is, well, noone wants to hear the crap spewed out of those wackos mouths, and that is pretty evident by thier lack of listeners, so now, they will force out the conservative and libertarian shows. They say a few things in the report that was previously linked that is pure crap. The license to broadcast is not free. A radio station pays thousands annually to the fcc for a license to brodcast, plus the spectrum fees. A radio staion is a business, just like a television station.They do numerous polls annually to track thier ratings and if they see that certain things do not go over, they change thier programming format. So, basically, if people wanted to here the liberal view, it would show in thier polls, and therefore be added to the programming.

Do you have a link that supports the above statement?

I am unaware of any attempts by the government to restrict the information that comes out of FOX News or any attempt to prosecute FOX News for what they do. I would appreciate a link.

I'm aware that some comments have been made by Anita Dunn ("a wing of the Republican Party") and Robert Gibbs (Obama goes on FOX to debate the competition), but I am unaware of this "attack" of which you speak.

Obama has done it again .... another Czar who just looooves the communists.
(interesting pattern ... isn't it? )

are we living in the 50's and 60's again?

Since when has right-wing talking points reverted to cold war propaganda?

"The Communists"?

Are you serious?

Agreeing with something that communists also agreed with does not make someone a communist.

That'd be like saying anyone who enjoys pastries is a Nazi - since Hitlers favorite food was baklava.

Seriously ... criticize obama all you want...just at least stop making things up to make your arguments look credible.
