Liberals Ask FCC to Police Internet for 'Hate Speech'

A group of liberal media watchdogs, including Free Press, the Media Access Project, and Common Cause, have sent a letter to the FCC asking the agency to track media "hate speech" and its effects, including on the Internet. The letter states that "hate, extremism and misinformation have been on the rise" and asks the agency "to examine the extent and effects of hate speech in media, including the likely link between hate speech and hate crimes, and to explore non-regulatory ways to counteract its negative impacts."

It looks like these liberal groups agree with President Obama--there's too much information out there, too many different opinions.  It's time the government did something about all that free thought.
