Democrats Continue to Threaten Censoring of Popular Talk Show Host via the "Fairness Doctrine"

Democrats continue to threaten the abolition of radio talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham by passing legislation bringing back the misnamed "Fairness Doctrine"

 

Left-wing Senator Debbie Stabenow, Democrat from Michigan, was reported in yesterday's "The Politico" newspaper on Capitol Hill to want to bring "accountability" to the public airwaves, whether it's called the Fairness Standard [sic]" or "whether it's called something else." Last year, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi, said that the "Fairness Doctrine" needed to be addressed in Congress. The question for Pelosi and Stabenow is, will their "Fairness Doctrine" applied to radio talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham also be applied to the left-wing television news networks such as NBC, CBS and ABC?

In her interview with liberal radio talk show host Bill Press -- who apparently is feeling a little lonely on the radio airwaves since the overwhelming majority of the American people do not like listening to liberal talk show scolds -- Debbie Stabenow told him: "I absolutely think it's time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves." Apparently, having all three major news networks in bed with the Democrat Party is not good enough for Stabenow. No First Amendment rights for any Americans disagreeing with their left-wing agenda!  Stabenow went on to tell Bill Press that she she "think(s) it’s absolutely time to pass a standard."

Bill Press -- the failed television talk show host, and apparently failed radio talk show host fearing for his job -- went on to ask Stabenow: "Can we count on you to push for some hearings in the United States Senate this year, to bring these owners in and hold them accountable?" Stabenow replied that she "already had some discussions with colleagues" about Fairness "Standard" hearings and that she "feel(s) like that’s gonna happen. Yep."

Those Americans who believe in the First Amendment and who listen to Rush Limbaugh better get ready for yet another battle royale against a Democrat Party which bridges no dissent from their left-wing viewpoints. This better not slip off the radar screen of any American who believes in the First Amendment.

The Fairness Doctrine is only a tool to further silence what I believe is the majority of this country. If no disagreement is allowed to take place then we may as well refer to our Republic as a totalitarian state. Censuring the media has taken place throughout history and to my knowledge has never led to anything good.
Our leaders took an oath to support and defend the Constitution against threats both foreign and domestic. Why then would they ignore freedom of speech? They seem to me to want to only listen to their side of ANY issue and will not tolerate another voice. Pelosi is a prime example of this discrimination. Her claims of being bi-partisan are always accompanied by Bush bashing to some extent and many of us have had enough!!
On the other hand, fine, institue the fairness doctrine and let us know where the conservative anchors and hosts will appear on NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, etc. And they must appear in equal numbers and time to their liberal counterparts. (This is completely ridiculous by the way, as the respective ratings and markets dictate what people want to see and apparently there is a huge conservative push right now!!)
