    They never envisioned television either but would you support the government dictating to CNN what they can cover?

    When you are trying to affect the political policy of the nation, you are having an impact on me. Because of this impact, I have a right to know how that will affect me, why it is being done, and the interest that are supporting it Because it affects me. In order to be a well informed voter, and to exercise the privileged of voting in a view consistent with Jefferson, I need this information.

    It's tough to remember the exacts and for some reason this has been awfully hard to find but I guess what was passed is that when the shareholders vote to know what the company is spending on political spending, they must provide it.

    When their actions affect my life they do. But I don't need to know their motives, I just need to know their actions. The motives can be deduced.
