The American Spectator reported some disturbing news yesterday. Seems Rep. Henry Waxman is starting an investigation on Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Mark Levin.
Rep. Henry Waxman has asked his investigative staff to begin compiling reports on Limbaugh, and fellow radio hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin based on transcripts from their shows, and to call in Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin to discuss the so-called "Fairness Doctrine."
"Limbaugh isn't the only one who needs to be made uncomfortable about what he says on the radio," says a House leadership source. "We don't have as big a megaphone as these guys, but this all political, and we'll do what we can to gain the advantage. If we can take them off their game for a while, it will help our folks out there on the campaign trail."
So Waxman is going to use his position in Congress to investigate private citizens, to attempt to curtail their free speech rights for political advantage? Listen to Levin's response at Mark Levin Fan. It's superb. Here's a quote: "I will sue your ass and I will sue you for millions of dollars". I would take him at his word...
Rush had two callers today who had called Waxman's office. One was told Waxman's position was being misrepresented, the other was told it was a rumor and they were trying to find out how it got started. "It's not true". The caller did not believe that and neither do I.
Here is the transcript from Rush's show (yesterday).
