Shut Up, America! The End of Free Speech
Recorded on June 24, 2009
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium
Can you be trusted with free speech? Many politicians in
Washington don't think so. They see your right to free speech
as a threat to their seat in power. In his bestselling book,
author Brad O'Leary examines the movement afoot that would
eviscerate the First Amendment. O'Leary reviews how
censorship is on the march from the Orwellian "Fairness Doctrine"
to so-called "net neutrality" and "campaign finance reform"
Over two decades ago, Ronald Reagan gave birth to a flourishing,
free exchange of ideas when his Federal Communications Commission
removed the shackles of the misnamed "Fairness Doctrine" and
restored the First Amendment. What was a boon to honest
debate has proven to be a nightmare for left-wing
politicians. And, now, once again, the censorship proponents
are putting the First Amendment squarely in their sights.
Brad O'Leary is President of ATI-News.com, publisher of The
O'Leary Report, and a former NBC Westwood One talk show host.
He is the author of eleven books, including Presidential
Follies, Triangle of Death, and Are You a
Conservative or a Liberal?
