‘Diversity czar’ wants parallel government broadcasting system

President Obama’s diversity Czar at the Federal Communications Commission proposes adding a vast public broadcasting system to the growing list of Obama’s parallel institutions.

Mark Lloyd has attracted attention for his controversial statements. Most notably, he praised Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez for leading a democratic revolution.

In Prologue to a Farce: Communication and Democracy in America, Lloyd proposes what would become a huge federal broadcasting system and yet another Obama parallel institution. It would join the “civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military that candidate Obama proposed, and the cadre of Czar advisors that parallels the Cabinet Secretaries.

To that list could be added government control over two of the three U.S. auto companies, significant influence in several large banks, a monopoly in the mortgage and student loan financial markets, and the proposed control of the nation’s healthcare system.

If, as predicted elsewhere in the American Thinker, Obama’s next big push is to mute his most successful critics in the media, Mark Lloyd would be a leading character in that effort. And, while an initial FCC move to fully implement what Lloyd proposes is unlikely, a scaled-down version could be on the horizon.
