    You realize how you are making yourself sound? Rabid, unthinking hyperpartisans are laughable. You make a thread about the fairness doctrine(which is dead), bitch about Obama, and apparently are unable to understand that Obama is against the fairness doctrine. This whole thing is about nothing, and you are just using it to spew out a bunch of mindless bitching and catchphrases.

    I say the federal government doesn't have the Cosntitutional authority to issue broadcast licenses, period.

    On top of that, the government has no legal authority to regulate content.

    And to put cherries on it, the Internet is rapidly making broadcast TV irrelevant.

    If it applied to the television besides radio then it would actually be fair,since it does the term fairness doctrine is a misnomer. I do not support forced speech being applied to private companies.If it was tax payer radio station then yes it should present both sides of issues.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    It's a political ploy for whoever feels like they are not receiving enough serious attention.

    So will non-DEMS/REPS get air time with this "Fairness Doctrine" or is it
    only Fairness for the REP-DEM Monopoly ?

    Sorry but this belongs in conspiracy theories.


    "Epic Fail," huh? Way to prove conclusively you only see what you want to see.

    I would of course be against the so-called "fairness doctrine". The entire concept completely goes against the 1st amendment.
