Today, Dr. Frank Wright, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, released an op-ed tacitly ripping the Obama administration for their betrayal of free speech principles. Wright writes about the Obama administration’s pressure on Google and YouTube to remove The Innocence of Muslims, the video supposedly behind the riots across the Muslim world. “A free marketplace of ideas will always serve a free republic best,” says Wright. “It should alarm us all when new media giants like Google and Facebook begin to lean in a direction and have the kind of influence where they will have an adverse impact in the free marketplace of ideas.”
