Is it not enough that 90% of all of MSM votes Democrat? Is it not enough that NPR is socialist? The Democrats still feel the need to juice up the propaganda machine some more by silencing the only market driven segment of the media market … talk radio. The(Un)Fairness doctrine will kill this medium and the power hungry socialists in the Democrat party know it.
Who wants to put Al Franken on after three hours of Rush? At one point when the AM630 put Sam Donaldson after Limbaugh for a couple of hours, the station manager said, “The audience may experience some cultural dissonance.” Oh, thats what you a reaction akin to Blutarski’s when he saw Flounder’s picture on the wall. Got it.
Nancy Pelosi the other day made some incredible statements regarding this infringement upon the first ammendment …
“Do you personally support revival of the ‘Fairness Doctrine?’” I asked.
“Yes,” the speaker replied, without hesitation
OK, so censorship of the media is a good thing because? This cuts both ways people, at some point it will be your opinion that could get the ax in the name of ‘fairness’. This bill is being called the ‘Hush Rush’ bill so those on both the left and right know who is targeted. Since Al Franken flopped despite millions in seed money, the left has decided to simply end the discussion. Such courage deserves scorn to say the least.
A petition has been organized by the Media Research Center to help move ‘The Broadcaster
Freedom Act’ to the House floor. Pelosi said that The Broadcaster Freedom Act “wouldn’t see the light of day”. This coupled with the strong Democrat Speakers support for a revival of the “Fairness Doctrine”and the government censorship of our free speech rights brings me to ask all to sign this petition BEFORE FRIDAY.
The idea is to do to the speaker what conservatives did to the amnesty mess and overwhelm Pelosi with a message from the grassroots that even she can’t ignore. Signing this petition can make a difference, our free speech rights are under attack due to naked partisanship.
On Friday, over 100,000 of petitions were delivered to each of the following members of Congress:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (D-NY)
Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY)
Rep. Jason Altmire (D-PA)
Rep. Robert Wittman (R-VA)
Rep. Ralph Regula (R-OH)
Rep. Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV)
Copies were also delivered to Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) who taken the lead in the fight to end government censorship over the radio airwaves once and for all.
Your petitions were all the more timely and relevant, coming on the heels of Speaker Pelosi’s remarks stating her intentions were to keep the Broadcast Freedom Act in the dark, while working to reinstate the “Fairness Doctrine.”
