    The Progressive's Plan to Stifle Free Speech

    [QUOTE]Special Report: The Plan To Silence Conservatives

    By Cliff Kincaid on Jan 15, 07

    Memphis, Tennessee: Media reform sounds like a good cause. But the gathering here of more than 2,000 activists turned out to be an effort to push the Democratic Party further to the left and get more “progressive” voices in the media, while proposing to use the power of the federal government to silence conservatives.

    In short, triumphant liberals now want to consolidate and expand their power.

    Several speakers, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Rep. Maurice Hinchey, declared that they think Congress should use a new federal “fairness doctrine” to target conservative speech on television and radio. [I](aka- since progressive radio has turned into a miserable failure all political talk radio should be a failure)[/I]

    [B]But while conservatives are not ashamed to be conservatives, because of the popularity of their ideas about freedom, a strong military, economic growth and traditional values, the liberals at this conference wanted desperately to avoid the use of the term “liberal,” apparently because of its association with failed domestic, social and foreign policies. They described themselves and their causes as “progressive.” [/B]

    If this conference has an impact, and the participants were called upon to put pressure on the media and Congress, we should expect increasing references to the term “progressive” in coverage of controversial liberal initiatives, including the proposed agenda for “media reform.”[B] The only question is when congressional liberals get enough nerve to aggressively push this authoritarian attempt to muzzle their political opponents. [/B]

    The Soros Connection

    [B]Sponsored by Free Press, a Massachusetts-based organization that is generously subsidized by pro-Democratic Party billionaire George Soros, the “National Conference on Media Reform” featured Bill Moyers and Jesse Jackson and Hollywood celebrities such as Danny Glover, Geena Davis and Jane Fonda. [/B] [I](some real unbiased heavy hitters there![/I]

    Soros, portrayed by the major media and “progressives” funded by him as a humanitarian and philanthropist, has made billions of dollars through international financial manipulations conducted through secretive off-shore hedge funds. He was convicted of insider trading in France, one of many countries to have borne the brunt of his global financial schemes.

    He spent over $26 million in the 2004 presidential campaign trying to defeat Bush and also contributed to groups that have brought Democrats to power in Congress.

    His “media reform” agenda is being pursued primarily though Free Press, which has received at least $400,000 over the last several years from the Soros-funded Open Society Institute. But Soros has also poured money into groups like the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Fund for Investigative Journalism, and Investigative Reporters & Editors.

    [B]One obvious purpose of such grants is to steer the media away from investigating Soros himself. However, during one media appearance, on the CBS 60 Minutes program, Soros acknowledged that as a 14-year-old Jewish boy in Hungary, his identity was protected and that he actually assisted in confiscating property from Jews as they were being shipped off to death camps. As an adult, he shuns pro-Israel causes and believes in accommodating the Iranian regime. [/B]

    The Free Press co-founder, John Nichols, has edited such books as Against the Beast, a critique of the “American Empire,” and shares Soros’s opposition to a U.S. foreign policy that targets emerging threats in the Arab/Muslim world.

    In addition to the creation of what he calls a “New World Order” under U.N. auspices, Soros’s causes include abortion, drug legalization, and special rights for immigrants, homosexuals, felons, and prostitutes. An atheist, Soros is promoting the complete breakdown of traditional values and morality in America.

    In the official conference program, however, there was no mention of the Soros role in funding Free Press. However, thanks were extended to the Nathan Cummings Foundation, the Overbrook Foundation, Quixote Foundation, Glaser Progress Foundation, and the Haas Trusts.

    “We are grateful also for the generosity and support of many other public charities, private foundations and individual donors,” the conference program said, carefully concealing their identities.

    Publications and organizations given credit for promoting the event included The American Prospect magazine, The Washington Monthly, The Nation, and MoveOn.org

    Reds Not Under Beds

    The Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP), which opposes the Chinese communist government as too capitalist, was one of the official exhibitors. Also on hand, displaying banners calling for the impeachment of President Bush, was the so-called 9/11 truth movement, which holds that Muslims were blamed for the 2001 terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon when U.S. officials actually carried them out.

    Other exhibitors included the Newspaper Guild, Consumers Union, Mother Jones magazine, Pacifica Radio, and Amy Goodman, host of “Democracy Now.”

    While the Democratic Party and its political leaders were embraced by most of the participants and usually met with standing ovations, the official conference bookstore didn’t offer any books by or about Hillary Clinton. I was told by the bookstore owner that that she was perceived as too conservative by this crowd and that those books wouldn’t sell.

    On the other hand, books by Senator Barack Obama and Al Gore were prominently featured. Books by Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Mikhail Gorbachev, former White House reporter Helen Thomas, and Webster Tarpley, a former associate of Lyndon LaRouche, were also available. Tarpley, an “expert” on how 9/11 was a U.S. plot, was a featured guest for two hours on Air America, the liberal radio network now in bankruptcy because of bad management and dismal ratings.

    A special screening of the film “Reel Bad Arabs” was held, in order to argue that Arabs and Muslims deserve more favorable coverage from the media and Hollywood. The film is narrated by Jack Shaheen, who recently appeared on Al-Jazeera English making charges of anti-Arab media bias.

    Very little was said during various panels about the Islamic terrorists who killed almost 3,000 Americans on 9/11 and are currently killing American soldiers and innocent civilians, most of them Muslims, in Iraq. Instead, Bush was blamed for the violence there.

    Showing where conference participants stood on the matter of maintaining a U.S. military to defend America against the global Jihad, one of the books on sale at the official conference bookstore was titled, 10 Excellent Reasons Not To Join The Military.

    Former conservative David Brock, of another Soros-funded group, Media Matters, labeled the Bush foreign policy of liberating Arab lands as “criminally insane.” On the same panel with Brock, Norman Solomon of the Institute for Public Accuracy suggested that U.S. foreign policy was immoral and that the media were working hand-in-glove with the Bush Administration to prepare a military attack on Iran, just as they had done with Iraq.

    [B]Reaching new levels of hysteria, Rep. Maurice Hinchey said the survival of America was itself at stake because “neo-fascist” and “neo-con” talk-show hosts led by Rush Limbaugh had facilitated the “illegal” war in Iraq and were complicit in President Bush’s repeated violations of the Constitution, such as by detaining terrorists. He warned that the “right-wing oriented media” were now preparing the way for Bush to wage war on Iran and Syria. [/B]

    His answer, a bill titled the “Media Ownership Reform Act,” would reinstate the federal fairness doctrine and authorize bureaucrats at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to monitor and alter the content of radio and television programs.

    Hinchey, chairman of the “Future of American Media Caucus” in the House, was introduced as the new chairman of a subcommittee with jurisdiction over the FCC. For Hinchey and the vast majority at the conference, there was a pressing need for more, not less, regulation of what they call the “corporate media.”

    [B]With passage of his bill, Hinchey said that “progressives” would be able to demand and get “equal access” to programs hosted by conservatives and rebut the “baloney” of people like Limbaugh. “All of that stuff will end,” Hinchey said about the influence of conservative media. By name, he also denounced Fox News and Sinclair Broadcasting. [/B] [I](I wonder if conservatives would be able to get equal time/coverage on ABC/SEE BS/NBC/CNN/MSNBC/TIME/NEWSWEAK/NY SLIMES/WACOMPOST[/I]

    Hinchey praised Democratic FCC commissioners Michael Copps and Jonathan Adelstein, who appeared at the conference, and indicated that with the election of a Democratic President in 2008, the FCC could be openly used to frustrate the growing popularity of conservative ideas, perhaps under the cover of resisting “media consolidation.”

    Later, Hinchey was seen preparing for an appearance on Air America, which had a make-shift studio set up on the premises of the conference.

    Protecting Public Broadcasting

    Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen, who was just elected to Congress from Memphis, assured the audience that Democrats would protect and possibly increase funding for public broadcasting, which he noted is on the “left hand side of the dial” but has been having problems generating listeners and viewers.

    One of the cries of some participants was to “put the public back into public broadcasting,” apparently a plea for even more “public” money from Congress.

    Public broadcasting’s Bill Moyers, who spoke to the conference about the “ravenous” nature of “Big Media,” was obviously not referring to public TV or radio’s appetite for U.S. tax dollars, even though AIM has documented how these entities have received over $8 billion from the taxpayers since their creation. The far-left Pacifica Radio, another taxpayer-supported network, had a heavy presence at the “media reform” conference. [I](hey Moyers...who you spying on these days??)[/I]

    [B]The appearance of Moyers, who served as White House press secretary in the Lyndon Johnson Administration before he worked for CBS News and public TV, was curious, at least at this conference in Memphis, because he had been aware at the time of his service to LBJ of secret surveillance of Martin Luther King, Jr. [/B]

    King was assassinated in Memphis in 1968 and his birthday celebration on January 15 was mentioned by several speakers, most notably Jesse Jackson, a former King aide.

    One 9/11 truth movement booth featured a poster claiming that King was murdered as the result of a U.S. Government conspiracy, even though James Earl Ray was convicted of the crime and sentenced to prison. Ray died in 1998.

    Continuing this fascination with conspiracy theories about the deaths of prominent people, a book for sale at the conference bookstore, titled, American Assassination: The Strange Death of Paul Wellstone, claims that the airplane accident that took the life of the liberal Senator from Minnesota was actually deliberate murder. The book claims Wellstone’s “progressive” stands made him a target. [I](bitonti would've felt right at home with these losers)[/I]

    Senator Sanders, the only open socialist in Congress, accused the media of covering up King’s opposition to the Vietnam War. He did not mention that King took that approach because he had come under the influence of identified top members of the Soviet-funded Communist Party USA, who had become his close advisers. This is one of the reasons why the Johnson Administration—and then Attorney General Bobby Kennedy—approved FBI surveillance of him.

    King’s radical turn to the left, which detracts from the good work that he did, should not be a taboo topic but it is one of many issues that “progressives” want censored from the media. Another King controversy that is off the table for “progressives” is his well-documented plagiarism.

    Socialist Urges One-Sided Coverage

    Sanders, who votes with the Democrats in the Senate despite his official status as an independent socialist, claimed conservatives were 99 percent in control of talk radio and that it was time “to open the question of the fairness doctrine again” to restrict what they say and how they say it.

    He faulted the media for covering two sides of the global warming debate “when there is no debate in the scientific community.”

    Clearly, therefore, the purpose in proposing a “fairness doctrine” is not to offer different points of view but to silence viewpoints liberals regard as unsound or unpopular.

    Sanders indicated he would introduce a Senate version of the Hinchey bill.

    A similar bill, the “Fairness in Broadcasting Act,” was sponsored by Democratic Rep. Louise Slaughter, the chairman of the House Rules Committee that has enormous influence over what bills are brought up for votes.

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson, the object of fawning media coverage despite the scandal of producing a child from an extramarital affair, argued before the conference for “the right to be heard” and insisted that the major media were not telling the real story of pain and suffering in George Bush’s America.

    Despite claiming to be for open debate and discussion, he recently urged consumers to boycott DVDs of the Seinfeld comedy show because the actor who plays one of the characters had been caught making racist comments in a night club. Jackson had the actor, Michael Richards, on his radio show to apologize for the remarks.

    Suggesting the real agenda behind “media reform,” Jackson said that the key to Democrats winning “is more access to the media.”

    That may depend, however, on how the “progressives” market their unpopular ideas, especially when they actively begin their congressional campaign of suppressing viewpoints in opposition to their own.

    Making himself out to be a victim, Jackson said that he should be called by the media for comments on foreign policy issues like Iraq, rather than just racial controversies like the Duke rape case.

    Clearly staking out a position on the far-left fringe, Jackson accused Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of taking “baby steps” legislatively when she should be exercising “bold leadership.” On Iraq, he said, “you can’t be against the war and for the war budget.” Rather than just raise the minimum wage, he said Pelosi should introduce a massive new jobs program. He concluded his remarks by asking people to watch his TV program on the Word television network and to tune into his “Keep Hope Alive” radio show on 50 stations.

    Republicans as Thieves

    At a panel moderated by Paul Waldman of Media Matters, Steve Freeman of the University of Pennsylvania argued that the 2004 presidential election was stolen on behalf of George W. Bush. His associate, Jonathan Simon of the Election Defense Alliance, took to the microphone during the question-and-answer period to argue that the 2006 elections were rigged as well and that [B]the Republicans are preparing to steal the 2008 presidential election. [/B] [I](the diebold machines worked just fine last November...didn't they??)[/I]Waldman, who claimed to be dedicated to factual accuracy in covering current events, didn’t dispute any of this. In fact, he stated his belief that Al Gore had won the 2000 election and that the media knew it.

    Another panelist, Cornell Belcher, the official pollster for the Democratic National Committee, seemed to be taken aback by the conspiracy theories and pointed out that the Democrats had, in fact, made substantial gains on the federal and state levels in 2006.

    However, during a conversation over breakfast, Freeman reiterated his belief that the Democrats had won far more seats than they were given credit for in 2006. Asked why they wouldn’t protest the stealing of votes, he said, “Democrats are in on it.” He described Republicans and Democrats as the A team and B team, and that when one team makes too many mistakes, the other goes in for relief. Asked for his opinion on the 9/11 truth movement, he said, “Nothing would surprise me.”

    A panel on “Media, War, and Impeachment” featured Jeff Cohen, founder of Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, whose December 2006 magazine features Hugo Chavez of Venezuela on the cover as he addressed the U.N. holding up a copy of Noam Chomsky’s book on the dangers of American “hegemony.” That was the appearance in which Chavez labeled Bush the devil.

    The article inside the magazine by FAIR’s Steve Rendall accused the American media of unfairly criticizing Chavez for “challenging the U.S.,” not because he makes absurd charges, chums around with people such as the anti-Semitic and anti-American Iranian president, and threatens press freedom in his own country. Promising “Socialism or death,” Chavez was just sworn in for another presidential term.

    On Saturday night, as participants prepared for an event featuring Jane Fonda, they were given copies of a four-page flier advertising Bob Avakian’s book, From Ike to Mao and Beyond. The flier said that Avakian, the leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party, has been described by Cornell West of Princeton University as “a long distance runner in the freedom struggle against imperialism, racism and capitalism.”

    Scott Lee, an RCP “helper” passing out the fliers, told me that he thought the conference was worthwhile but too heavily titled in favor of the Democratic Party. He said he wasn’t aware that global capitalist George Soros had funded the left-wing conference organizers but that the money had gone for a good cause.

    This is what passes for “progressivism” these days. It is a clear danger to freedom at home and abroad.

    [QUOTE][B]The Communist-influenced "Media Reform" Movement
    By Cliff Kincaid | January 20, 2007 [/B]

    Having previously reported on the participation of Revolutionary Communist Party members at the "National Conference on Media Reform," I can now confirm that members of the old Soviet-line Communist Party USA were there, too. But it gets even more interesting. It turns out that one of the founders of the group sponsoring the conference is personally rubbing elbows with identified communists in a broader movement designed to impeach President Bush and force a U.S. defeat in Iraq.

    In a message to supporters of the People's Weekly World (PWW), the CPUSA paper, editor Teresa Albano reports that she attended the event along with two St. Louis PWW bureau members. She says, "What a conference it was! Over 3,000 people attended―all concerned about the state of democracy in this country now that Big Media Conglomerates control most of the political debate, culture and stories that Americans see, hear and read everyday. It's a new and blossoming movement…"

    In her article about the event, supposedly dedicated to "media reform," she reports, "Many conference speakers celebrated the defeat of the Bush administration in the November elections. All stayed on message—targeting the big corporate and right-wing interests that have taken over the news and other sources of information. Speakers also blasted the commercial media's role in the run-up to the Iraq invasion."

    "With a new Congress," she added, "the conference touched on legislative possibilities for media reform. Rep. [Maurice] Hinchey said legislation governing media reform is possible in this session of Congress, but only with continued public pressure. Hinchey sponsored the Media Ownership Reform Act, a bill that would rein in media monopolies and reinstate the Fairness Doctrine that requires broadcasters to present issues in an all-sided manner. That kind of equal access, he said, was 'wiped out' in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan."

    As I previously reported, the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) was at the conference, maintaining a booth and passing out literature about its leader, Bob Avakian, who thinks the current leadership in Communist China has sold out to the capitalist West. The RCP is regarded as the largest Maoist party in the U.S., and Mao is considered the greatest mass murderer in history.

    The RCP website reports that one Sunsara Taylor, a writer for the party paper and a "revolutionary leader," was on the Bill O'Reilly show on Fox News, where the host labeled her a "lunatic" for opposing the war on terrorism in general and the detention of suspected terrorists at the Guantanamo prison in particular. The communist group complained that "At one point, the frustrated O'Reilly snarled that if things were as bad as she says, she'd be hanging on a meat hook in Guantanamo."

    O'Reilly, who has the most popular show on cable news, was labeled a "fascist" by the communist organization, which urged its supporters to send messages of protest to Fox News over his treatment of Taylor.

    Under the federal Fairness Doctrine, which the Democratic Congress could restore, the RCP could file a complaint with the Federal Communications Commission and possibly get additional time on the air to rebut O'Reilly. "This must not be allowed to quietly subside," the party said about O'Reilly's misbehavior.

    Indeed, that's what the "media reform" movement is all about. The movement is openly dedicated to forcing conservative media to incorporate "progressive" views into their programs.

    On January 4, Taylor participated in a National Press Club news conference sponsored by the "World Can't Wait" coalition, which wants President Bush and his "regime" removed from office. Interestingly, Taylor serves on the advisory board of the coalition. Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, notes that, "Some of the founders of World Can't Wait are public supporters" of the RCP and cites Sunsara Taylor as one example. This would appear to lend credence to the suspicion that World Can't Wait is nothing but a front organization of the RCP.

    Other members of the World Can't Wait advisory board are James Abourezk, former U.S. Senator, South Dakota; Rosemary Candelario, pro-abortion activist; Warren Hern MD, physician and pro-abortion activist; Mark Leno, California State Assembly; Mark Crispin Miller, professor & writer; Tomas Olmos, attorney; Boots Riley, hip hop performer; Lynne Stewart, attorney; Gore Vidal, writer; and Howard Zinn, historian.

    Stewart, of course, is the attorney convicted of aiding an Islamic terrorist group.

    Other speakers at the January 4 press conference included Cindy Sheehan and John Nichols, a writer for The Nation and co-founder of Free Press, the sponsor of the media reform conference.

    In her report on the news conference that she also participated in, Sunsara Taylor praised Nichols for urging Bush's impeachment. She reported, "As opposed to taking impeachment off the table because of the big trouble the U.S. is having with the war in Iraq, Nichols argued forcefully that these are the circumstances when it is needed most!"

    It looks increasingly like the official participation of the Revolutionary Communist Party in the media reform conference was no fluke, and that the organization, like the CPUSA, is an important part of this "blossoming" movement.

    [B]But don't expect our "corporate media" to report the facts about how these "progressive activists" include hard-core communists dedicated to the destruction of America and the American way of life. [/B]

    Will it be considered newsworthy that the World Can't Wait coalition includes a convicted pro-terrorist lawyer on its advisory board? And that a leading advocate of "media reform" is right in the middle of all of this? Don't bet on it.

    Good job by Ashcroft who quit after she was "convicted".

    [B]Sunsara Taylor[/B] is an up and coming political activist and is associated with "The World Can't Wait" - an organization which is dedicated to impeaching George W. Bush. [B]She believes humanity is capable of a morality flowing from principles which guide an ongoing struggle to uproot all vestiges of male supremacy[/B], to [B]promote and base ourselves on science and truth, to value people around the world as much as ourselves[/B], to [B]overcome the brutal history and present reality of racism[/B], and to [B]construct a better world in the process[/B].

    Those sound like good principals to me....

    The conference was in Memphis last weekend. These people are on point with the fact that the media is controlled by the right wing. Media reform is coming. The MSM had a role in getting us into Iraq. In the very least they never asked the proper questions to verify the stories that were presented by this admin.

    [I]
    [B]Hinchey sponsored the Media Ownership Reform Act, a bill that would rein in media monopolies and reinstate the Fairness Doctrine that requires broadcasters to present issues in an all-sided manner. That kind of equal access, he said, was 'wiped out' in 1987 by President Ronald Reagan." [/B] [/I]

    This is how we know that the media is right wing. Why do they want to fight a fairness doctrine? The media is not liberal.

    Why is the Right Wing against "Fairness"? We are going to get. And this congress will deliver or get tossed. So far this congress is doing quite well and listening to the people. The 'rubber stamping' is over!!!!!


    [I][B]But don't expect our "corporate media" to report the facts about how these "progressive activists" include hard-core communists dedicated to the destruction of America and the American way of life. [/B] [/I]

    This is nothing more than fear mongering, a favorite tactic used by the republicans. Do you really think that these communists pose a threat to 'our way of life"? Get real. This sound like "if you vote for democrats, that is a vote for terrorists".

    Before I close here is some history on Kincaid, the writer of this crap:

    [I][B]During the 1999 war in Kosovo, Kincaid and Irvine accused the Clinton administration of "demonizing" then-Yugoslavian leader Slobodan Milosevic -- currently on trial at the Hague on charges of genocide and war crimes.[/B][/I]

    [I]
    [B]A February 1, 2005 "AIM Report" repeated misleading allegations that "officials of the United Nations ... started a campaign blaming the U.S. for being 'stingy' and 'slow' to respond to the Asian tsunami disaster." In fact, the U.N. official who made the "stingy" remark, undersecretary-general for humanitarian affairs Jan Egeland, was referring to Western countries as a whole and never singled out the United States.[/B][/I]


    [I][B]AIM falsely accused Democrats of secretly authoring a "talking points" memo that described the Terri Schiavo case as a "great political issue" for Senate Republicans. After casting suspicion on the origins of the memo by labeling it a "dirty trick," Kincaid even went so far as asking The Washington Post to "admit their error" in reporting the memo's likely Republican origins. One week after AIM's second press release attacking the media for their "error," Republican Sen. Mel Martinez (R-FL) admitted publicly that one of his aides was the true author of the memo. Even then, Kincaid still claimed that "the use of this memo in a spate of anti-Republican stories on the Schiavo case still looks like a Democratic Party dirty trick. Indeed, the evidence on this score is stronger than ever."[/B][/I]

    C'mon man, get a writer with some credibility here....
