    FCC Commissioner Warns of Back Door to Fairness Doctrine

    Though much of the discussion about a possible fairness doctrine for broadcasters went away when Republicans took over the House of Representatives in 2010, one Federal Communications Commissioner says there still could be an effort at finding a back door to the rules. Commissioner Robert McDowell told Chris Stirewalt on Monday's Power Play Live that localism, a proposal that gives the federal government the ability to make sure broadcasters serve their communities, could also be used to wedge in principles of the fairness doctrine.

    "The government would be compiling data as to what kind of content you were airing and whether the government thought that was appropriate content," McDowell said. "It could be political speech, it could be shows on baking or gardening. But we don't know where the government is headed."

    Since The Constitution was shredded two years ago why is anyone surprised that The Bill of Rights is under attack now?

    Remember, if a presidential edict can be used to shut down conservative discussion now then, in a few months when we have a new president left-wing discussion can be shut down instantly. Oh wait, there is NO left-wing discussion on commercial radio or TV because there's nobody fool enough to support it with advertising. So all that will be needed is to de-fund NPR and it'll be all over for the lefties.

    Perhaps, but it remained for the O-Bong man-child to smoke it.

    Why else would Obama put Mark Lloyd in as Diversity Chief at the FCC? Have none of you read the book 'Nudge'? If not, read it.
