[url=http://www.time.com/time/politics/article/0,8599,1638662,00.html]GOP Rallies Behind Talk Radio
[/url]

When Senator James Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican, told a radio host last week that he had overheard Senators Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer discussing a "legislative fix" for the dominance of conservatives in talk radio...While Clinton and Boxer denied they had ever said such a thing...

and, in fact, Inhofe later admitted that the conversation in question occurred three years ago — statements this week by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, and Illinois' Dick Durbin, the number two Democrat in the Senate, added to a growing fear amongst some conservatives that the left is on the offensive against talk radio — and that the right needs to fight back.

Feinstein and Durbin both came out in favor of re-instituting the Fairness Doctrine, which, before being struck down in the mid-80's by the FCC, forced broadcasters to offer equal time to hosts on opposing sides of controversial issues. And Tuesday, New York City public radio host Brian Lehrer aired a clip from a months-old interview with Massachusetts Senator John Kerry in which Kerry proclaimed, "I think the Fairness Doctrine ought to be there ... One of the most profound changes in the balance of the media was when the conservatives got rid of equal time requirements. The result is that they've been able to squeeze down and squeeze out opinion of opposing views."

A PRIME EXAMPLE of how PROPAGANDA brainwashes the masses!
