Obama Supports Censorship

So you think the Democrats are the anti-censorship party of free speech? Tell that to their chosen leader Barack Obama.

It seems that Mr. Obama is upset with Chicago radio station WGN for giving airtime to David Freddoso, author of The Case Against Barack Obama: The Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda of the Media's Favorite Candidate.

Prior to Freddoso's scheduled appearance on WGN, the Obama campaign sent the following "Obama Action Wire" e-mail alert to supporters:

The author of the latest anti-Barack hit book is appearing on WGN Radio in the Chicagoland market tonight, and your help is urgently needed to make sure his baseless lies don't gain credibility.

David Freddoso has made a career off dishonest, extreme hate mongering, and WGN apparently thinks this card-carrying member of the right-wing smear machine needs a bigger platform for his lies and smears about Barack Obama -- on the public airwaves.

So just who is this "card-carrying member of the right-wing smear machine" who Obama thinks needs to be silenced? He's a 1999 graduate of the University of Notre Dame who went on to study at Columbia's Pulitzer School of Journalism. He was a reporter for "Human Events" for three years and a senior political reporter for Robert Novak's "Evans-Novak Political Report" for three years. He is a commentator for National Review Online's blog "The Corner."

Freddoso is a conservative journalist to be sure, and according to Barack Obama, that makes him an extreme hate monger who needs to be censored.

Nice post Bryan. The hypocrisy abounds in the Democratic ranks.
