    FEC chair warns that conservative media like Drudge Report and Sean Hannity face regulation --- like PACs


    Government officials, reacting to the growing voice of conservative news outlets, especially on the internet, are angling to curtail the media's exemption from federal election laws governing political organizations, a potentially chilling intervention that the chairman of the Federal Election Commission is vowing to fight.

    “I think that there are impulses in the government every day to second guess and look into the editorial decisions of conservative publishers,” warned Federal Election Commission Chairman Lee E. Goodman in an interview.

    “The right has begun to break the left’s media monopoly, particularly through new media outlets like the internet, and I sense that some on the left are starting to rethink the breadth of the media exemption and internet communications,” he added.

    The Democrats do not want anyone to hear anything except the straight Democrat Party line. They need their own Pravda and means to force the rest of us to read it or nothing else.
