That Obama the Dictator is preparing to muzzle the press by "suggesting" which stories it should cover, introducing "newsroom monitors" to make sure that newsrooms across the country towed the line.

Began with a WSJ article a week and a half ago.

Then went viral on the right wing blogs a few days later.

turns out.. it really is a "study" being done by the FCC.... a stupid study, I think.... but only a study, and hardly the start of some effort to control the media.

I see. Quite the definition of lie here. How do you know that Obama wouldn't want to monitor and/or influence the press?
