    • On July 20, 2009, by jgalt - I find it amazing that the Government thinks that coercing a broadcast entity to air views in opposition to its editorial policy is somehow aligned with "freedom". The Broadcaster Freedom Act" must be defeated as this represents the greatest threat to liberty this country has seen in a long time. All repressive governments know all to well, that the first item to go, if the regime is to succeed, is truth in freedom in reporting news and expressing ideas. The First Amendment cannot be compromised!
