"Licenses" and Tax Support for News?

Remember when some people opined that Obama was 'a moderate kinda guy'?

He sure surrounds himself with strange creatures...

...Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks has hung up her journalistic hat and joined the Obama administration, but not before penning a public proposal calling for some radical ideas to help bail out the failing news industry.

Brooks, who has taken up a post as an adviser at the Pentagon, advocated upping "direct government support for public media" and creating licenses to govern news operations.

And guess what? It's all BUSH'S fault!!

"Years of foolish policies have left us with a choice: We can bail out journalism, using tax dollars and granting licenses in ways that encourage robust and independent reporting and commentary, or we can watch, wringing our hands, as more and more top journalists are laid off," she wrote

None of those "foolish policies" were detailed by Ms. Brooks.

This is not an accident. The administration knew what she was when they appointed her. TCO wants this to happen.
