Another little foretaste of what an Obama victory would mean for freedom of speech:
Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign organized its supporters Wednesday night to confront Tribune-owned WGN-AM in Chicago for having a critic of the Illinois Democrat on its air.
“WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears,” Obama’s campaign wrote in an e-mail to supporters. “He’s currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers.”
Kurtz, a conservative writer, recently wrote an article for the National Review that looked at Obama’s ties to Ayers, a former 1960s radical who later emerged as a school reform advocate in Chicago. […]
Obama’s campaign has launched similar offensives against stations that have run campaign ads that it did not like.
…as we’ve seen.
Now is your chance to read up on Obama’s long-time friend and associate Bill Ayers, the unrepentant anti-American terrorist at whose house his political career was launched. Information on the alarming backgrounds of Obama’s friends and associates might not always be available.
