“Fairness,” According to Kerry

Posted by Ryan on June 27, 2007

John F’in Kerry adds his name to the chorus of those who are now coming out for renewal of the “fairness” doctrine to destroy talk-radio and silence free speech because Americans are realizing that fundamentally and philosophically, Liberalism is not a better alternative.

How are we realizing this?  After forty-five years of Liberal pre-dominance of ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN, the “new” media, spearheaded by talk-radio and the Internet, is offering an alternative to the usual bias, and completing the sentences of many of the MSM’s own news stories.  Americans know how to get the whole picture and when they see it, the old-school liberal bastions don’t look so good anymore.  So, like DiFi, Barbara Boxer, and She Who Must Not Be Named, John F’in Kerry’s added his name to the list of those who see the only alternative to fighting in the arena of ideas and market forces is to restrict or even silence it.

    In some cases, we’re covering the stories one doesn’t even see in the MSM. They won’t push through the fairness doctrine. As you say, the TV stations would be ridden with challenges from guys like us on day 1.
