FCC complaint filed over "hate" on cable (National Hispanic Media Coalition)

In a bid to silence opponents of illegal/massive immigration, the National Hispanic Media Coalition has filed a complaint with the FCC alleging that various cable TV hosts are spreading hate regarding immigration matters (link, via this). The NHMC stresses that they aren't advocating bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, they just want the FCC to look into the matter:

[They] want the FCC to collect data, seek public comment, explore what they say is the relationship between hate speech and hate crimes and "explore options" for combating it.

Indications are that their concerns will fall on sympathetic ears:

Acting FCC Chairman Michael Copps was not commenting on the petition, either, but he did indicate that he stood by comments he made to B&C back in 2007 about regulating hate speech, a conversation prompted by Don Imus' comments about the Rutgers women's basketball team.

Note that back in 2006, Antonio Villaraigosa "declared war" on KFI hosts John and Ken over their opposition to illegal activity, and did so at a NHMC function.

UPDATE: Apparently the Institute for Public Representation at Georgetown University Law Center is also involved.

UPDATE 2: There's more on this here; they're still going after John & Ken.

UPDATE 3: The full text of the complaint is here.


They probably ought to sue the DOJ as well because if you go to the DOJ's site you can clearly see that Hispanics are approx 4x as likely as Whites to be imprisoned. So they have to remove all that sort of info from public access because you can't expect people who see it to stop reaching the obvious conclusions.
