Fairness Doctrine

Thursday, June 28, 2007 2 comments


Don’t worry this has nothing to do with Paris Hilton. The democrats are trying to muzzle conservative talk radio. Congressman Dennis Kucinich is reintroducing the Fairness Doctrine (article). This would allow the government to monitor and make sure there is a balance on the media airwaves. I have a few problems with this. First, it is a violation of the first amendment. Secondly, conservative talk radio does not claim to report news. They simply give their perspective on current events. I think this the democrats trying to compensate for the failed liberal talk radio ‘Air America’. I don’t think this has a chance, but it just goes to show how the democrats love big government and want to control everything. They need to leave private networks alone, they already have PBS and NPR. Rush Limbaugh has more listeners than both.

    I can't imagine this ever getting any legs to it. It's an absolute violation of the first amendment. If it did happen though, would they enforce it with the TV networks. They would actually have to show the good things that are happening in Iraq.

    I doubt it.

    I think the idea is just another waste of time! This is another example of how the Dems will never get it until it is either too late, or, until they are no longer in existance. But, i guarantee that if they do try & impose this there will be the biggest anti- democrat revolt ever to hit this country in recent memory, and as a result they will have nailed their coffin SHUT!
