Kerry, Durbin rush to back "Fairness Doctrine 2.0"
How funny, senators. Some of us have an even "older fashioned" attitude that Americans deserve a free press. I think it was even mentioned in that silly old document that's kept under protective glass at the National Archives but otherwise ignored.
If we weren't talking about something as abhorrent as government censorship, it would be amusing to note how liberals are focusing solely on talk radio pundits. Reporters' contributions favored Democrats 9-t0-1, so clearly the staffs in the nation's newsrooms tilt solidly leftward. Perhaps that's why broadcast coverage during the 2006 elections also favored Dems. And yet I haven't heard liberals call for a Fairness Doctrine aimed at TV and newspapers.
