Fairness Doctrine

The Blade pushed for fairness doctrine - more governmental intrusion

I'm not at all surprised that the Blade came out in favor of revival of fairness doctrine as it applies to AM radio.

While most are getting sick of smoking ban talk, I souldn't help but notice the Blade is treating the fairness doctrine as they did the Ohio smoking ban. Read the next two paragraphs and notice that I only changed the tense and the topic and the words still accurately reflect the situation.

Will Toledo be ground zero for the Fairness Doctrne debate?

Another article on the Fairness Doctrine? Is this area trying to be ground zero for the debate? All one has to ask is if this is such a threat, then how did the Democrats take power? It makes no sense, but look at those proposing it and maybe you can understand why. There is another article in the Blade today about the issue and one wonders why this is the case, especially since the article admits it most likely won't get any attention.

Pelosi Supports 'Fairness Doctrine'

From Human Events:

The speaker of the House made it clear to me and more than forty of my colleagues yesterday that a bill by Rep. Mike Pence (R.-Ind.) to outlaw the “Fairness Doctrine” (which a liberal administration could use to silence Rush Limbaugh, other radio talk show hosts and much of the new alternative media) would not see the light of day in Congress during
’08. In ruling out a vote on Pence’s proposed Broadcaster's Freedom Act, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-CA.) also signaled her strong support for revival of the “Fairness Doctrine” -- which would require radio station owners to provide equal time to radio commentary when it is requested.
