    It seems to me that in todays news arena liberals can say anything they like but when conservatives talk...oh boy, look out.
    "The coalition did not mention any specific media outlets."
    Come on, we know whom they are talking about.

    Liberal Groups Want FCC to Police Talk Radio, Cable News

    A coalition of more than 30 mostly liberal organizations has sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission urging the agency to monitor “hate speech” on talk radio and cable news networks.

    The groups assert in the letter that “hate, extremism and misinformation have been on the rise . . . as the media has focused on Arizona’s passage of one of the harshest pieces of anti-Latino legislation in this country’s history.”

    The organizations include the Center for Media Justice, the Rainbow Push Coalition, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, and Common Cause.

    “As traditional media have become less diverse and less competitive, they have also grown less responsible and less responsive to the communities that they are supposed to serve,” the letter states.

    “In this same atmosphere hate speech thrives, as hate has developed as a profit-model for syndicated radio and cable television programs masquerading as ‘news.’”

    The coalition did not mention any specific media outlets.

    The groups also argue that the Internet has made it more difficult for the public to separate “the facts from bigotry masquerading as news,” The Hill newspaper reports.

    The Internet “gives the illusion that news sources have increased, but in fact there are fewer journalists employed now than ever before,” according to the coalition.

    “Moreover, on the Internet, speakers can hide in the cloak of anonymity, emboldened to say things that they may not say in the public eye.

    “For these reasons, as the Commission deliberates how the public interest will be served in the digital age, it should consider the extent of hate speech in media, and its effects.”

    Seems to me that most, if not all, the "hate speech"comes from the libs, anyway. Maybe they'll get shut down.

    If conservatives want to enforce existing laws then that is hate speech. That's so lame it's laughable.

    In the past, wasn't most hate speech from the Democrat side? I thought historically, most Southern racists like the KKK were Democrats? And hey think about this for a second. The Democrats are a socialist, working peoples' party. Wasn't that what the Nazis were? The Nazis were outspoken proponents of hate speech too.

    And as far as I am concerned, I thought ALL speech was protected under the first amendment.

    If you can't shout load enough and often enough to drown out the truth, then make speaking the truth a crime.

    I remember being told when I was little that I may not like what someone says, but in this country, they have the right, no matter how disdainful.

    Then another time it was my honor and duty to defend their right to say it...

    Was McCarthy a dem or rep?

    Hey...why haven't we seen the skinheads, neonatalnazies, etc. groups for a while...they used to be pretty vocal

    Freedom of speech is only for those that agree The Great Hussein and God King of Kenya. The rest of us vulgar, unwashed surfs must learn to keep our mouths shut as we toil, work, and pay 75% taxes for the greater glory of The Great Hussein, King-Emperor Barack I, His Great Awesomeness and All-Knowing Teleprompter:mad::mad:
