FCC Commisioner Is Daughter Of Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC)


The daughter of House Rep James Clyburn was appointed by Obama is the leading advocate for monitoring newsrooms for their content. 


“Advocates promote the project with Obama-esque rhetoric. “This study begins the charting of a course to a more effective delivery of necessary information to all citizens,” said FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn in 2012. Clyburn, daughter of powerful House Democratic Rep. James Clyburn, was appointed to the FCC by President Obama and served as acting chair for part of last year. The FCC, Clyburn said, “must emphatically insist that we leave no American behind when it comes to meeting the needs of those in varied and vibrant communities of our nation — be they native born, immigrant, disabled, non-English speaking, low-income, or other.” (The FCC decided to test the program with a trial run in Ms. Clyburn’s home state, South Carolina.)
Cronyism at its finest. Any questions?
Her bio reads she ran a “newspaper” and worked as a community organizer. Here is the newspaper:
‘“Clyburn has been a virtual one-woman show behind The Coastal Times, editing, selling ads and distributing one of two black newspapers in the Charleston area,” reported The Post and Courierwhen Clyburn left for the PSC. The Coastal Times, had a circulation of about 5,500 free and paid copies, mostly to black churches, according to Behre of The Post and Courier. “I don’t think it was a big money maker or a big enough operation to where she could sell it to another publisher,” Behre says.
That screams qualified don’t it. I feel better now.
