DNC Mourns Loss of "Reagans"

Media: Via Powerline Blog November 5th, 2003.

Here's the Democratic National Committee's take on CBS's decision to kill a slanderous, unfounded attack on Ronald Reagan: "CBS has decided to pull its miniseries about Ronald Reagan after a Republican National Committee-organized campaign complaining that it didn't lionize their favorite president enough. "CBS's decision is — to put it mildly — disturbing. Essentially the network has given the ruling party veto power over the content it puts on the air. "No, there are no First Amendment violations here. The RNC protested the content of a program, which is its right, and CBS voluntarily pulled that program off the air, which is its right. "But the decision makes it very easy to imagine a future where representatives for the Bush administration have the power to disapprove of any content that touches politics, policy, or history — including news programs." Yeah, that's easy to imagine all right. Currently the "power to disapprove of any content that touches politics, policy, or history -- including news programs" is almost 100% in the hands of Democrats. Frankly, none of us is imaginative enough to picture a world in which the American media are controlled by conservatives. On the positive side, it's nice to be referred to by the DNC as "the ruling party."
If ABC pulls the series, the RNC should copy this style to mock the Dems.
