That pesky Constitution! Senator Jay Rockefeller wants to shut down MSNBC and Fox News.

Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller voiced that he wanted to have MSNBC and Fox News shut down. Rockefeller says they're impeding the ability of Congress to get work done. Unfortunately for him, that notion violates the First Amendment to the United States Constitution which prohibits the government from infringing on freedom of the press. Looks like somebody needs a refresher on the laws that govern this country!

Also in the above clip, Rockefeller states, "We need to find a way to provide greater value to television viewers at lower cost." Can anyone tell me where in his job description it says that he's supposed to help provide greater value to television viewers? I didn't realize being a Senator also put you on the marketing board for the cable companies.
