FCC Whistleblower: News Bias Study "Suspended, Not Canceled"

by JASmius

C'mon, didn't you kind of suspect as much?

FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai, who blew the whistle on the federal agency’s plan to study purported bias in the news, says the survey has been "suspended," not canceled as the FCC has said.

The Federal Communications Commission declared last week that it had shelved a controversial survey on how newsrooms cover various news stories, which was derided by critics as a threat to the First Amendment right of press freedom.

But in explaining the decision, FCC spokeswoman Shannon Gilson said that "the pilot will not be undertaken until a new study design is final," suggesting the program could be brought back at a later date.

"It's suspended, and the way I like to think about it is [how] you would think about a baseball game being suspended," Pai told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. "It’s not being canceled, it could come back," he said Monday.
Of course, the Regime will bring it back.  Just more "under the radar" than they apparently believed they had to.  The very existence of the "study" itself guarantees that they won't give up on the idea of formalizing the partisan relationship between the Democrat Party and the Obamedia.  One way or another, every network, station, newspaper, magazine, etc. will become MSNBCCCP - or else.
