First of all, listen to to what was asked of Bill Clinton by an admitted liberal radio host. Seriously, don't take my word for it, hear it. The host is proud to ask Mr. Clinton if there should be "enforced ,media accountability." Mr. Clinton called for the return of the fairness doctrine or some other form of balance. I find it amazing that a man who swore to uphold the constitution of the United States would call for the return of something that abridged free speech. No one wants to listen to Liberal radio, Air America failed, NPR needs to be federally subsidized, and those smaller liberal shows such as the one above rarely are picked up for national syndication because the numbers are not there.
Now, to be honest, Liberals have most of the tv stations and a huge majority of the print media. I have always wondered why this doctrine does not seem to be aimed at those avenues and why this doctrine is now being pushed by liberals. I won't say this is being pushed by democrats as I am sure, unlike the stimulus pork fest, many democrats would opposed this forced censorship.
Forcing a radio station to carry certain programming, at the expense of other programming is exactly the same as forcing a library to carry certain books at the expense of other books.
That is a road I am sure all but the most tyrannical liberals or conservatives want to go down.
