Wes Vernon: The Emerging Threat to Conservative Talk Radio

In the latest issue of Accuracy in Media’s Aim Report, columnist Wes Vernon writes about the upcoming threat to conservative talk radio.

Writes Vernon:

Ominously, Obama has chosen as his transition chief John Podesta, who is president of the George Soros-funded Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank that produced a report attacking conservative talk radio. But there is reason to believe the attack that is expected to come from an Obama-controlled Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will not come, at least immediately, in the form of a new push for the Fairness Doctrine. The attack, which is actually now underway and building, comes in the form of demanding localism. This is an effort by progressives in various cities to object to conservative talk radio being aired by local radio stations.
