Bill Clinton doesn’t like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet. And he thinks the United Nations or the U.S. government should create an agency to do something about it.When you stop laughing at that, how about this? As an example of what he has in mind, Clinton points to liberal lapdog media entities like NPR or the BBC:
“It would be a legitimate thing to do,” Clinton said in an interview airing Friday on CNBC.
The agency, Clinton said, would “have to be totally transparent about where the money came from” and would have to be “independent” because “if it’s a government agency in a traditional sense, it would have no credibility whatever, particularly with a lot of the people who are most active on the internet.”
“Let’s say the U.S. did it, it would have to be an independent federal agency that no president could countermand or anything else because people wouldn’t think you were just censoring the news and giving a different falsehood out,” Clinton said.
“That is, it would be like, I don’t know, National Public Radio or BBC or something like that, except it would have to be really independent and they would not express opinions, and their mandate would be narrowly confined to identifying relevant factual errors” he said. “And also, they would also have to have citations so that they could be checked in case they made a mistake. Somebody needs to be doing it, and maybe it’s a worthy expenditure of taxpayer money.”Gee, I wonder if this has anything with the controversy over Common reciting poetry at the White House. The cop killer Common reveres so much - Assata Shakur - was sprung from prison by none other than Susan Rosenberg, a Weather Underground member whom Bill Clinton pardoned in 2001.
I didn't learn that on NPR or BBC. I learned it courtesy of Al Gore's invention.
