Obama group proceeds with so-called FCC diversity rules

Hundreds of radio stations are silent for want of an owner--available for anyone who wants them. Why don't the diversity seekers just go get them?
  • Answer: Because their goal isn't diversity.
  • It's to silence opinions different from Soros/Obama.
Broadcasting & Cable: "The FCC has named the new members of its Advisory Committee on Diversity for Communications in the Digital Age, which will hold a meeting May. 7. They include cable vets Debra Lee (BET) and Matt Blank (Showtime), as well as broadcasters, public interest group representatives, telco execs, and association representatives.
