This is a United States Senator.

I don't want to beat a dead horse here, but a UNITED STATES SENATOR claiming the Land of the FREE would be better off if the government closed down two NEWS outlets?! Why isn't EVERY news outlet across the country screaming from the rooftops about this?

“There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the F.C.C. to say to Fox and to MSNBC, ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and, more importantly, in their future.” -Senator Jay Rockefeller, (D) WV

I guess liberal groups can't really say anything here because they've all shared the same wish. It's fear that seeks to limit information. I have no desire to close down CNN or Media Matters et al. I could care less. They need to ask themselves...why do they care so much? But that aside, I think we need to have a serious discussion as a country about a United States Congressman that sounds to have more ideas aligned with a KGB operative than a Founding Father...
