Fairness Doctrine 2.0: Hill & Babs target talk radio

Sen. James Inhofe says that he overheard Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer discussing plans to "regulate" (i.e. censor) talk radio. (Listen to his radio interview here.) While the dynamic duo denied the claim, this comes on the heels of a report issued by a left-wing think tank calling for government control of political content on the nation's radio stations.

This comes on the heels of Trent Lott's absurd statement last week: “Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.” Lott was grousing about talk radio's ability to stir up opposition to the Bush/McCain/Kennedy compromise on immigration and amnesty.

If you think that We the People have no business keeping an eye on Washington's actions, then what these Senators are saying makes sense. In that case, let's allow these wise and august leaders to tell the little people what's best for them. But why stop with talk radio? My company is publishing Dr. Jerome Corsi's new book, The Late Great USA, which hits DC hard for undermining American sovereignty. If talk radio needs to be censored, what's to stop Congress from muzzling all elements of the press and requiring companies like World Ahead to reserve several chapters at the back of each book for a rebuttal?

Anyone with a shred of concern about free speech understands that what Clinton, Boxer, and Lott are saying is despicable. No, let me rephrase that -- they are despicable. They are displaying utter contempt for the Constitution and the American people.

  • The people advocating this are fascist garbage. Kucinich, Boxer and the PIAPS? DhimmicRATS don't surprise me, but Trent Lott? He is a shameful disgrace.

    The truth is that the phony and failing so-called liberal and progressive agenda is a sham and more people are waking up to it. The Left has a very weak argument that comes across even worse on the radio, and people just end up changing the channel.

    No one is stopping George Soros from pumping millions into a money-losing Air America and keeping it going forever. But it is just such a bad business model that apparently even Leftie Moonbat Soros can't stand donating endless drops of his bucket to it.

    absurd thought -
    God of the Universe says
    CONTROL the media

    socialists as dangerous
    should never be exposed

  • Having read The Late, Great USA, it's obvious we need an Eric Jackson as the Carl Rove of a White House where someone is President who understands why America is.
