Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he would look to block a merger between NBC and Comcast, citing the decision last week by MSNBC to suspend liberal anchor Keith Olbermann.
Sanders said Comcast’s attempt to acquire NBC from General Electric would result in “another media giant run by a Republican supporter of George W. Bush.”
And obviously the federal government should be putting a stop to such things. A Republican owning a media giant! How can our government allow such things to happen? Isn’t that why we have so much regulation?
I can’t help also note that it was, of course, a hard core MAList media organization that put Olberman on the beach, something else for which obviously the GOP is to blame.
Senator Rockefeller is on the same page — but remember, we must oppose the Tea Parties who are going to censor us.
And a Democratic Party member of the House of Representatives calls on Rupert Murdoch to slant Fox News for the benefit of her political beliefs.
