If the Fairness Doctrine does come back, congress should make it apply to ALL programming - including entertainment shows.
We certainly shouldn't just go after "conservative" talk radio. I think every person over the age of 54 should have the right to get the oldies station that "they" want. It's not fair because they are so old, right?
The week before the Texas-Texas A&M football game, should sports talkers in Austin/San Antonio be required to give equal time to fans of TAMU?
Hypothetically after 9/11 if any host said the events that occurred that day were “sad” or “bad”, wouldn’t a radio station be required to allow equal time as well?
Additionally, I have seen so many books that are biased. The authors should be forced if they convey any opinion, to allow an equal amount of space for an opposing viewpoint. The same should apply for magazines and newspapers. In fact, the Dallas Morning News should be required to devote the same amount of words, etc to an opposing viewpoint, no matter how absurd it is.
Now that this Amnesty/Immigration bill has failed, a lot of people in congress have talk radio in their scope now. The next few years will be interesting for our republic
