Now more of Mr. Lloyd’s comments are trickling out. At the 2008 National Conference for Media Reform he led a session called “Media Reform and Social Change”. During this session he made analogies about genocide in Rwanda and Hugo Chavez’s incredible revolution. Watch the video below and commentary by Glenn Beck….
In his 2006 book, Prologue to a Farce: Communications and Democracy in America,Lloyd called for making private broadcasting companies pay licensing fees equal to their total operating costs. These funds would be given to public broadcasting outlets to allow them the same funding to support their operations as a private company would have. In other words, corporate redistribution of wealth.
Money is not the only thing that Lloyd wants redistributed, he wants to “regulate much of the programming on these stations to make sure they focused on ‘diverse views’ and government activities.”
In addition to his work at the Center for American Progress as a Senior Fellow, Mr. Lloyd has been a journalist, as a communications attorney at Dow, Lohnes & Albertson in Washington, D.C. and general counsel to the Benton Foundation.
What is the Benton Foundation? “The mission of the Benton Foundation is to articulate a public interest vision for the digital age and to demonstrate the value of communications for solving social problems. Current priorities include: promoting a vision and policy alternatives for the digital age in which the benefit to the public is paramount; raising awareness among funders and nonprofits on their stake in critical policy issues; enabling communities and nonprofits to produce diverse and locally responsive media content.”
Are you sensing a theme? How about social reengineering through media control? I say it every post and I’ll say it again now, this is another threat to YOUR American way of life!
This is government moving toward policies that control the media, the internet and free speech. These policies will redistribute wealth and control all the messaging.
Radio and the internet are the primary tools for exchange of conservative ideas and conversation. We can not let them take our voices away. We must fight back and stand up for our rights. Liberty and freedom are ours to lose if we don’t get involved; in the end we will only have ourselves to blame if we do nothing.
Restore the Republic, Reject Socialism!
