While serving as a senior fellow at the liberal Center for American Progress, [Mark] Lloyd called for the government to reduce the number of broadcast outlets a company own as a means of reducing the number of radio stations carrying conservative programs. He wrore that “no one entity should control more than 10 percent of the total commercial radio stations in a given market.”
Lloyd also said that no one entity should own “more than four commercial stations in large markets (a radio market with 45 or more commercial stations).”
Currently, an entity may own no more than eight stations in a large market. Lloyd’s recommendation, were it to become policy, could force station owners carrying programs such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin to sell their stations. CNSNews.com
This man is dangerous. Well, hell knock me alongside the head – the whole administration is dangerous – what am I thinking?
Not only is Lloyd calling for the censoring of conservative radio hosts, but he’s lowering the bar at how many stations a private business can own. Obviously, a consumer driven market means nothing to this guy. Or he’s not smart enough to understand the basic economics of it.
Or maybe the real true answer is that he understands this all too well and it scares him.
How did we get all these communists in power at one time? Where is Joseph McCarthy now? Don’t answer those questions… like you, I already know.
