Will Fox News Be Banned From Census Money?

Sunday, 11 Oct 2009 04:07 PM

The upcoming 2020 Census comes with a mega-budget for advertising to media companies to encourage citizens to participate – but some media companies may be banned if the Obama-run Census Bureau has its way.

The Census Bureau’s web site details its planned media offensive “in order to inform everyone about the 2010 Census and its importance, the U.S. Census Bureau has developed an integrated communications campaign (ICC) that includes paid media, earned media, a national partnership program and the Census in Schools program.”

But the Census Bureau also makes clear that media with “controversial talk” formats will be banned from getting any ad deals, as will other media that don’t fit the Census Bureau criteria. According to the Census, prejudice and bigotry are the biggest moral crimes and saying something bad about an imam can get you blacklisted.

The Census Bureau website even provides a ”Questionaire” that media applicants are required to fill out to see if they are up to snuff, as the Bureau sees it.

On the online form, question number one asks media vendors if they adhere to the Bureau’s “Content Appropriateness guidelines” and “identifies restricted environments for all Census paid media and value added opportunities.”

The Bureau then lists the criteria that will put a media company their blacklist:

  • Excessive sex or violence

  • Anti-U.S. government sentiments or supporting any violent acts toward the government or the American people, including but not limited to terrorism

  • Questionable moral or ethical values, particularly dealing with bigotry or prejudice

  • Denigration of any cultural group or faith-based communities (imams, ministers, nuns, priests, rabbis, etc.)

  • Anticipated controversial programming that cannot be pre-screened (i.e. reality programming)

  • Controversial talk formats

    The Census Bureau hasn’t weighed in yet, but we’re wondering if they think Fox’s O’Reilly, Hannity and Beck fit into their “controversial talk” category.
