    H.R.4189 - To require the Secretary of Defense to provide an annual certification that all programming on the American Forces Radio and Television Service represents the best-faith efforts by the Department of Defense to provide programming for members of the Armed Forces and their families that communicates the policies, priorities, programs, goals, and initiatives of the Department while avoiding airing programming that exhibits values contrary to the values of the Armed Forces and the United States.

    http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-h4189/show


    The flap over Limbaugh’s presence on AFN is now attracting congressional attention, with Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., the Senate Armed Services Committee chairman, saying he thinks Limbaugh doesn’t belong on the military radio network.

    In addition, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, has introduced legislation advocating decency standards for AFN radio and television broadcasts that would prevent the airing of programs that “exhibit values contrary to the values of the Armed Forces and the United States.”

    Levin told reporters that he would not personally demand the Defense Department cancel Limbaugh’s radio show, but “I would love to see them drop it.”

    Ryan’s bill, introduced Thursday, would require annual certification by the Defense Department that shows broadcast on the military’s radio and television networks support policies, goals and initiatives of the military without exhibiting negative values. Ryan said he was not proposing censorship, but wanted “common sense and decency” applied to programming decisions.

    His bill, HR 4189, was referred to the House Armed Services Committee for consideration, where it could be offered as an amendment to the 2013 defense authorization bill that the committee will pass later this year.

    Its nothing more then a political stunt. He knows it will never pass the House.

    If the GOP in the house votes it down. He and his dims run out and proclaim the GOP doesn't care about "Values important to the Military."

    My question is...if they manage to get Rush off...does that mean that NPR and Ed Schultz and Thom Hartmann get the axe too?

    What about the entire line up of MSNBC?

    Exactly...it continues their stupid "GOP has a declared a war on women" meme and claim they support Rush more than they support the troops.

    If they get rid of Rush, they have to get rid of Randi Rhodes-I've heard enough about her to know that she is just as obnoxious and tasteless as Rush is. I don't listen to or watch most of those listed, except Jon Stewart and sometimes Stephen Colbert.

    But you know as well as I do that they won't. Mike Malloy makes Rhodes look like a saint.

    LOL! Rush tasteless?

    The two NPR shows, Morning Edition and All Things Considered, are straight news. They have some commentary like on Friday with E.J. Dionne and David Brooks but it is presented as commentary, not news.

    The others, like Shultz and Maddow, are factish infotainment like Rush. They just use a different schtick.

    Thank you for showing us you have no cluse as to what "straight new" really is. I've listened to both. They are as left in their "reporting" of news as the rest of the majot netowrks.

    If what the way they report is "straight" news to you...then you are farther to the left in your daily worldview than you realize or will admit to.

    They have some commentary like on Friday with E.J. Dionne and David Brooks but it is presented as commentary, not news.
    Both shows are nothing but commentary.

    But hey...what do I know about news and the media right?

    The preceeding talking point was approved for regurgitation by Media Matters for America.
