Here's an interesting tidbit that may give some insight into John Kerry's perspective on free speech and private property.
In Washington, Kerry spoke to minority journalists at their quadrennial Unity convention. He was "warmly accepted throughout his speech and he drew big applause with his comments about the lack of minority journalists and ownership of television stations and newspapers," MSNBC.com's Darrell Bowling reported. "He says when he's president he would make sure to bring in an FCC chairman who would fight to increase minority ownership of broadcast outlets."Personally, I don't think it's the government's place to get involved in what kinds of people should own media outlets and what kinds shouldn't. I can hardly think of a worse matter for the government to meddle with; what's next, regulating the racial distribution of clergy?
