Washington, DC ? The so-called “media reform” movement, which wants to check and dilute the power of conservative media, especially talk radio, includes members of communist groups openly dedicated to America’s destruction, Accuracy in Media’s Cliff Kincaid discloses in a new column. Kincaid identifies them as members of the Communist Party USA, which was funded by the old Soviet Union, as well as the Revolutionary Communist Party, a group that follows the teachings of history’s greatest mass murderer, Mao Tse-tung.
The Kincaid column is a follow-up to his exclusive report on the “National Conference on Media Reform,” held in Memphis, Tennessee. The column, “The Communist-influenced ‘Media Reform’ Movement,” and his January 15 special report, “The Plan to Silence Conservatives,” are available at www.aim.org.
The “media reform” movement wants Congress to resurrect the so-called “fairness doctrine” so that it can force conservative media to incorporate “progressive” views into shows like the O’Reilly Factor on cable news and the Rush Limbaugh program on radio.
“Having previously reported on the participation of Revolutionary Communist Party members at the ‘National Conference on Media Reform,'” Kincaid says, “I can now confirm that members of the old Soviet-line Communist Party USA were there, too. But it gets even more interesting. It turns out that one of the founders of the group sponsoring the conference is personally rubbing elbows with identified communists in a broader movement designed to impeach President Bush and force a U.S. defeat in Iraq.”
Kincaid has also disclosed that the Free Press, the group which sponsored the conference, is subsidized by billionaire leftist George Soros.
