    Hell, it's open season on all things Conservative.

    Just ignore the last 4 years. Pay no attention to the next 4.

    It'll be over... eventually.

    Oh, boy. Another Obama/leftist/liberal/progressive/commie/socialist/fascist conspiracy theory. God knows we don't have enough of them already.

    This ought to be the new theme song of the looney right.

    The left is already prepared to revise the 1st Amendment with the ironically named "fairness doctrine" which is aimed at conservative talk radio. That's two down and eight to go.

    Obama said neither our taxes nor health care would go up. January 13, most working Americans have seen their take-home pay decline and healthcare increase.

    Ignorance is bliss. The Fairness Doctrine was (note past tense) a policy of the FCC requiring that when a station aired a controversial opinion, it had to also provide time to a party that wished to offer a counterpoint. In other words it required "fair and balanced". Senator Joe McCarthy (R-Wisc) not only used the FD to respond to Edward R. Murrow's report on him in 1954, but played a major role in instituting the Fairness Doctrine a few years before.

    Though upheld by SCOTUS in 1969 on a case of ad hominem, the Fairness Doctrine was abolished by FCC Chair and Reagan appointee Dennis Patrick in 1987. Which you'll note is just about the time Lush Rimjob began his radio attack on civil discourse. But until that time, what the Fairness Doctrine did was ensure that if one opinion came in from this side, another one had to be welcomed from that side. Ergo it would be impossible to "aim" at any side whatsoever.

    In other words exactly what we have the capacity to do here on this message board. Now what's your prob with that?

    Note on the OP- the link contains nothing but a one-paragraph opinion warning "the leftists are coming" offering no evidence whatsoever. That and $4.52 will buy you latte.

    The RW idjits can listen to talk radio to their hearts content.
    They call it "programming" for a reason.

    This link is from 2009 but it does show there are some Democrats who do want the Fairness Doctrine back now these people may not even be in office anymore and I doubt it would ever be reinstated but still there were and probably still are some from the left who want it back and with Obama not having to worry about reelection again they might try and push this issue.
