We now have a site dedicated to stopping the socialist Democrat attempt to reinstitute the "Fairness Doctrine", which is code for killing conservative talk radio.
http://fairnessdoctrinewatch.org has been started by blogger NZ Bear http://truthlaidbear.com to monitor the Democrat march to try to bring back as antiquated a government regulation as, oh, the fairness doctrine.
The short primer is that the Federal Communications Commission, FCC, in 1947 put into effect that the radio and television medium, the two major electronic forms of communication at the time, that broadcasters must always air both sides of major issues of the day. Also, it made broadcasters have to devote a certain amount of programming to "public affairs."
In 1987, the Reagan administration let the doctrine die and by not renewing it had the foresight to realize that an information revolution was in the making and keeping it would be an impediment.
But, to the Dems, the impediment is that conservative talk radio as put a huge spotlight on them and what they really want to do to the United States. Hence, they are building a head of steam to get the "Fairness Doctrine" enshrined into law.
The "Fairness Doctrine" is a fraud. It will make conservative talk radio as it is now non-existent and that is just the way they like it. It is not enough for the Democrats to have all control over the big three networks, the newspaper axis of evil, the New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, NPR, PBS, CNN, MSNBC.
So, please keep up with and get those fingers dialing the phone or pounding the typing keys to your senator or congressman to oppose any attempt to muzzle conservative talk radio. Remember, we did a good job with the "comprehensive immigration reform" bill-scam, and this maybe another case to fight a loser congress not addressing real concerns of the American people.
