We are there already. Editorial decisions on facebook are being examined by checking out what kind of things you start typing and then decide not to post.

With all due respect, I wish you'd put this in the Hoax Bin!

What is going to happen? I'm watching "Game of Thrones" and my "smart tv" will just switch to MSNBC because I didn't receive my daily allowance of "information"?

Since when has been up to government to determine who, how, how much, information an individual gets?

Oh my freakin' god!


As I mentioned earlier...

During times of war.

www.imediaethics.org...

Actually I doubt if there was ever totally free access by media to anything concerning the govt. It's propaganda by all political parties not just this one.

Oh, I agree. whatever regime is in power gets to display "their" information!

I'm still trying to weigh, in both hands, the "fact", that I have "information needs".

I can only imagine, what those are.

I thought I was just lonely.

I don't see a problem with this. I would however have a severely huge #in' problem if they started to invade anything under private ownership (they already do under the guise of spying). As far as I know large networks like Twitter & Facebook hold their users in high regard & protect our privacy from invasion. With newspapers its not so much a big deal even though some papers are privately owned, it's all about the nature of what they do. They are in the information sharing business, I can't imagine how it would hurt.

Sadly is something wrong going on when people no longer trust their constitutional rights anymore, freedoms seems to become now something to be ashamed off rather than cherished, you can see that going on when the government is attacking those that try to protect any rights.

I can see that when people post agreeing with anything that is done in the nation in the name of protection and national security, the NSA spying is ok, the tracking of citizens is ok, drones in the sky is ok, attacking groups protesting against oppression and government expansion is ok because is not oppression is national security.

I can go on and on, the new generation growing up in this new America will have nothing to pass on to their children.

It's the same as the "need" that the government determined you have of health insurance.

Everyone wants access to information... That doesn't mean the info is true or not. That's up to the person spoon feeding it to you.

Come one people they just want you to think that. News is controled by the government, all stories are scripted. Anchors don't write their scripts, they are just given them before going on air.

This is just a distraction to hide the truth

Yeah they are now. It won't be long now until social media is heavily regulated by the FCC or some other alphabet group. Unless the NSA is assigned to social media.

They already have sock-puppet accounts on popular forums which are used to steer the direction of a discussion. But they will also persistently attack anyone who expresses an opinion against the official line.

Yes the conglomerate are all part of the media giants owned by a few mostly foreign big names this are not really the target.

The small media will be the ones that will become the targets.

If a grass roots effort to launch a news network funded by private citizens without any ties to big business or government control were to appear online could it succeed ? Maybe...
Commercials restricted to local markets approved by citizen elected management. Fund raising similar to PBS allowing proceeds to pay for employees at a rate that would reflect market share of membership funding. I believe management and employees should be given short term renewable contracts based upon success of the network could be the answer to keep everyone honest and on the ball.
True News Network, the stories that matter. Truth matters, not just the stuff MSM wants us to hear.
Common someone, (Drudge?) let's do it !
Just a thought. We all know that something has to change. Tired of the same old ...

It's hard to believe this is real.
Surely news organizations will not submit to this,
and challenge it on 1st amendment grounds? Orwell is rolling in his grave.


Well, it will be voluntary, you see. And those that do not volunteer will find themselves audited and subjected to fines, audits, or threats of license suspensions on the basis of totally unrelated infractions in the weeks that follow. Thus crumbles the Republic...

The last remaining true journalists won't like this one little bit... it sure sounds like it could be abused.

The number of media outlets are under a couple corps... they're tied to ratings and advertising... and now a sunshine friendly govt does this shady move?

I hope people realize how important non-biased, fact based journalism is before it's too late... and it's never too late... until it is.

Me too.

Newt Gingrich mentioned this on CNN tonight . . . briefly. Where is the outcry from the press? Absent that, one might ask if they're not already bought and paid for.

What does it say about our government when I'm less surprised that this is happening, than I'm surprised that we're hearing about it. What a wonderful thing transparency is. It lets us know that the press is censored and state run.
