    going to take them down? The FCC? Congress? Not going to happen. Hell, we can't even get the Fairness Doctrine back in a watered form.

      They engage in self-defeating rhetoric of exactly the type you just used.  A Republican troll couldn't have done it better.  

      Is that what we want?  To pre-emptively declare surrender before we even fight the battle?

        tell me what is going to do it?
        It not troll behavior. It's being realistic. (btw I call many corporations telling them I'm not buying from them anymore because of this or that. what else can be done?)

        The Democrats fiddled on this for 4 years. 2 of which they had the whole shebang. They didn't want to change it!!!!! And now you think the Republican House is going to move against their propaganda arm? NWIH.

        •  introduce legislation.... (0+ / 0-)

          .... rolling back the Brandenburg decision for broadcast media and holding them to a "clear and foreseeable with a reasonable person test" standard for incitement.  Define broadcast media as anything transmitted via radio or television including cable TV but not including internet (I could write the tech language for that).

          The debate around that legislation would be very interesting, regardless even of whether it would stand up to Supreme Court scrutiny (and for all we know it just might).
