Big Brother wants to insist that you be approved by the government if you want to be a reporter.
If you don't have a licence to speak, then you'll be forbidden to do so. Notwithstanding the First Amendment.
Typical "progressive" horse crap!
It's just like what Hugo Chavez is doing. If he doesn't approve, he'll shut people up.
Obama and his people want to have it that way, too.
Don't be fooled by the "reasoning" of those who want to do this. They speak in code. They cannot be trusted.
"Our country needs more watchful eyes on our elected officials, not legislation that outlaws the truth from emerging,"
Exactly. More reporters, not fewer. People can always judge for themselves whether there's any evidence being presented, or if there's just a claim made by the reporter. And the evidence being presented by non-Big-Media reporters, such as those associated with Breitbart and World Net Daily... well, the evidence is so damaging to the current government that they'd be denied licences to shut them up, so that they could no longer tell us the inconvenient truth about the Big Bad State Apparatus as it tyrannizes us.
Hey! If Obama says people should have to have a licence to report, I say Obama should have to show his gosh-darned real birth certificate to prove that he's Constitutionally eligible to be President via being born on American soil! See? Again, we see Obama's hypocrisy, via a proxy minion.
Day after day, bad thing after bad thing comes up. Further making my case that Obama and the Democrats are very, very bad, to put it simply.
