During Obama's first term he started on his trek to limit sources of info from network nsws, to radio, to the internet - which is the most extensive by far. It was given a very innocent title: Net Neutrality which, simply put, means total federal CONTROL of access to, or knowledge of, information.
It's what dictators of communist regimes (like NKorea or China) or theocracies (like Iran, Syria or the Arab nations) enforce on their population. It wass also Obama's intention when he assigned Mark Lloyd as his FCC Czar. And Czars don't require Senate approval. Lloyd was/is a huge admirer of the now dead hard left Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.
In the video above Obama said that "Information becomes a distraction". It was his response because of the oppossing views being reported by Foxx News, conservative talk radio, as well as the websites which, unlike the news networks, are the most extensive.
It's seems to be the opinion of perhaps a few conservative-minded sorts that perhaps there is too much access to info on some sites. As we heard on the video above, BHO says that too much info is "distracting". Imo, only FAKE info (or disinformation) is not only the genuine distration - but totally deceiving as is intended. Thus, to even try to limilt, or ration, info, would directly and exclusively benefit the liberal (aka socialist, pro communist, or progressive) agenda.
To complain that there's just way too much info out there is NOT a problem at all; but a blessing. Thank God we are Americans!
Is there too much info out there?
