Corydon B. Dunham pursues new audience with additional marketing materials and warns of threats to basic freedoms

‘Government Control of News’ receives additional press-related services, video marketing

RIVERSIDE, Conn. – “History shows that governments will always try to control news,” says author Corydon B. Dunham. “A three vote majority of the five FCC commissioners, who control the FCC government agency, can expand FCC power over broadcasting and the Internet and help reelect an incumbent administration. President Obama appointed as FCC Chairman, former broadband lobbyist Wheeler, who immediately upon taking office, tried to take control of all broadcast news with proposed FCC investigations of station news bureaus. He failed but the FCC did control news on broadcast stations and networks, including political news for many years and since the beginning of television. The courts were slow to stop it.

A senior broadcast executive, Dunham, describes this news content control in detail in "Government Control of News: A Constitutional Challenge" (published by iUniverse). He reveals how the public lost access to vital information it needed to govern itself well. He says this history shows that if the administration can regulate the medium, it will find ways to control its content. We have to expect, therefore, that government will control news on the Internet unless the public speaks up to object to this now.

Dunham warns that many who would destroy the public’s First Amendment freedoms claim this is necessary to meet what they say are the demands of a modern regulated state. For example, the former head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Professor Cass Sunstein, an appointee of President Obama, has written in the past that free speech principles need to be dramatically revised with government using news to advance the administration's social and political objectives. This would mean unremitting speech and press censorship by a government agency and end much of the United States’ most precious speech and press freedoms.

"In the opinion of a former NBC legal executive, what's worse than the slew of recent scandals facing President Obama's administration that point to government censorship is that many conglomerate media outlets seem afraid to report on the scandals and their public consequences for fear of reprisals from the administration since conglomerates typically have many advantageous relationships with the government.

From the Department of Justice spying on the press and prosecuting selected news coverage, so-called mistakes in NSA targets, false reports on the causes of the Banghazi attacks, IRS targeting conservative and other groups and then defying investigation, Cory Dunham, who served as NBC"s chief general counsel, has concerns about the intimidation of the press and its sources, as that seriously endangers freedoms Americans have embraced since its founding.

The President of the Associated Press has noted that sources in the government are scared to even talk to the press if they are going to wind up involved in a government investigation. 'We need to stop press intimidation, Dunham insists "but there is little reporting about how that injures the public. It is a very serious threat to a free press and free speech and without them, there is no free country.

Dunham has revealed how the government censors the electronic press and can threaten an Internet press in his book, Government Control of the News" A Constitutional Challenge. (iUniverse)."
