The Fairness Doctrine Is Just What The Right Needs

The second best thing that could have happened to right wing talk radio would have been McCain winning the presidency. The first best thing: McCain losing. Barack Obama's victory gift-wrapped the AM broadcast Lords of Loud's most excellent goody since Bill went Monica all over the Oval Office. They now have the four-year gift that they'll make sure just keeps on giving.

Think Reverend Wright's oft-repeated anti-American "not God bless America, G-d America" tirade - you would think if he had actually been doing this so incessantly for over 20 years, someone would have dug up another rant - has been placed in the archives? Not a chance. Less than a week as president-elect and the honeymoon that never was, is over. Even when Fox News political reporter Carl Cameron told Fox News non-spinner Bill O'Reilly on Fox News cable, that McCain campaign officials told him that the dope on Palin was that she was a dope, there were some right wing talkers who hypothesized that the dirt was dished by the Obama campaign.

Which brings us all to the question of the Fairness Doctrine, or what radio‚s Lords of Loud call, "The End of Conservative Radio." The Fairness Doctrine was a U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses to present issues in a manner that was honest, equitable, and balanced. Not just say you're balanced.

Honore de Balzac

"Democrats work to help people who need help.
That other party, they work for people who don't need help.
That's all there is to it."

~Harry S. Truman
