CA Group Wants To Silence Conservative Talk Radio

A community organization group called Citizens for Civility & Accountability in Media is calling for KMJ-AM, a Fresno, California station, to "alter their programming in order to curtail practices that we believe to be damaging to our social fabric and to civility in public discourse. While we agree the government must protect the rights of free speech we also believe that we, members of this community, have a right to speak out against hate speech."

"We are specifically concerned about the 90-plus weekly hours of prime-time programming comprising the shows of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levine [sic], Glenn Beck, Inga Barks, Ray Appleton and others."

"It has begun," declares Rush Limbaugh in a radio statement.
