    That's rich...Coming from the father of redefining all democrats as evil. Yes you newbie GOP asshats..there was at least some civility in congress before Newt invented the lexicon of hate now so thoroughly used and accepted by the cons.

    Gingrich was a big part of what ruined the republican party. Piss on him.

    So, its okay with you that presidential candidate is demanding control over what you see on TV?

    Oh and BTW, the "fairness doctrine" is long gone. Under Ronnie Ray-Gun, it was thrown out in favor of Big Money from the GObP.

    I think t.v should be able to speak the truth no matter. Newt is going to have to get used to it and fight against it, but if not he should get out of the kitchen!

    If in fact the content of the ad is false I too would demand it be removed. Simply asking that material about you be true or not aired is a far cry from censorship.

    And for the record the FD may be gone but the support for it hasn't vanished. And that my friend is censorship based on favoritism. Libs have as many opportunities on the public airways. The people simply don't want to hear your dribble. Hence Air America going bankrupt and BSNBC's ratings being in the tank.

    Thanks to Murdoch and Ales among other network representatives lawsuit decided by the ultra neo con Supreme court it was ruled that there is no obligation by the media to present truth. I find it amusing that with all of the Newtster's education he hasn't run across the saying; "what's good for the goose is good for the gander".

    Really?

    Who decides what you should see? Who decides what is "true"? You really think Newt or any other politician, right or left, should have that power?

    Slippery slope doesn't begin to cover it and if you really are "older", then you know that US media used to be trustworthy and immune to money. Whether you know it or understand it, the GObP money now controls almost all media. But, right or left, no businesses or special interest should be able to control US media.

    Newt Gingrich is an authoritarian so this shouldn't surprise anyone.
