Sen. Rockefeller Suggests Eliminating FOX, MSNBC

I was very disappointed to wake up this morning and see a video of Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) blasting both FOX and MSNBC during a Cable & Broadcast subcommittee hearing on Wednesday with what appeared to be a request for government intervention if the network’s content is not cleaned up.

Here’s part of Rockefeller’s statement: “There’s a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to FOX and to MSNBC: ‘Out. Off. End. Goodbye.’ It would be a big favor to political discourse; 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.”

Rockefeller’s statement is concerning for a number of reasons but the most striking to me is the portion that reads: “It would be a big favor to political discourse…and to the American people.”

As I’m reading this, Rockefeller is saying that the United States electorate will be better informed if we ELIMINATE two major media voices – that getting rid of them would essentially be addition by subtraction.
