I don't get where Wayne Besen is going by claiming he was being coerced by managers to drop his support for Bernie. All the national shows they carried were Bernie supporters. And they remained his supporters until the bitter end at the DNC. Thom Hartman was/remains a close friend of Bernie.
He's loony if he thinks he will prevail in a NLRB case against Newsweb. Newsweb is not the government. So 1st Amendment rights don't apply here, never mind the Fairness Doctrine is all but dead. The simple fact is Mr. Eychaner is the licensee and can direct people (through his subordinate Mr. Gross) what he want's on the air. Never mind AFTRA can't challenge a licensee's right and privilege to air what they choose as well.
Wayne needs become a licensee so he can learn the same thing... But I guess he will learn it the hard way this way while the remainder of the business watches his bridges burn and say a thank you prayer this headache is and was not their's.
