    A journalist admittedly engaged in the unfair coverage himself is a pretty credible source, I'd think. It's not like it was Hannity.

    Just to point out... the Fairness Doctrine was no longer being implemented after the 1970's, which directly lead to the rise of 24 hour cable entertainment/news. Fox news would literally not exist if the doctrine were still enforced.

    Why, we should have the government ENFORCE that news pay 50/50 attention to candidates. But yes, giving more obama more attention was a centrally planned conspiracy Im sure.

    that is a rather silly response. the fact is, the media was in love with the empty suit Obama

    its how he got by Hillary and McCain. but even you probably know that even if you might not have been old enough to have voted in the election at the time

    No one supports it. To the point where the government literally stopped enforcing it.
