HR 1966 has cleared the House and now faces the Senate as S.909, the Matthew Shepard Hate Crimes Prevention Act (officially, the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act). The bill is expected to sail through the Senate as it did in the House. It will provide federal assistance to the states, local jurisdictions, and Indian tribes to prosecute hate crimes, and for “other purposes.”
It allows the federal government to prosecute people involved in “hate speech” transmitted over television, radio, and the internet. The House version of the bill states:
Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce [radio, TV, internet] any communication, with the intent to coerce, intimidate, harass, or cause substantial emotional distress to a person, using electronic means to support severe, repeated, and hostile behavior, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both. (HR 1966, SEC 3, Sec. 881a)

Left Wing Liberals hate Talk Radio, they tried to compete in it and nobody listened to them so if they can't play they want the game ended.....Censorship, Communism, Socialism, Nazism, what would we call it.......

In The Absence Of Law And Order Society Will Surely Destroy Itself
Keep laughing and talking UNTIL the table turns around and you wish that this law wasn't passed. In that moment, don't complain about why somebody shut down your LIBERAL broadcasting stations.
The laws doesn't apply one side.
But Harry says liberal radio couldn't compete (more like they didn't want to lower themselves to righty standards). So what have we got to lose? Point being is liberal broadcasting is not out there spewing and encouraging hate all over the place, so there's nothing to worry for liberal radio about there. And the only righty stations that have anything to worry about are the ones that do spew and encourage hate. Are you going to defend these?
