It appears to be the plan to regulate "fairness" in ALL media forms including the "net". I just got this from the Center for Individual Freedom. It has yet to be posted to their web page which is www.cfif.org

The Fairness Doctrine is nothing more than censorship. I thought the left wingers were against censorship. Humm... What makes the supporter of the Fairness Doctorine think that people are going to listen to the opposing views? Here again we have a bunch of people who think that the government knows what is best for the people. Are these supportor afraid of something?

I think the plan is to create rules that make it extremely hard for the conservative talk show hosts to find a venue to broadcast through. They want to quiet the opposition. I see things being done that can only put down the opposition. It is their desire to stay in power in perpetuity. Both major parties have that desire to one degree or another. They are afraid of loosing power as, in power there is personal financial gain.

It is quite a system our political parasites have developed over the years.

What ever happened to "Freedom of Speech"? It seems if only works for the left, anyone else doesn't have the right to disagree. What are they afraid of the? The truth??

mainopsman;

I for one am all for Free Speech and am not afraid of the truth. However I do not like extremes. Like the majority of Canadians I am Centrist. A little Conservatism a little Liberalism but let's keep it balanced.

Unfortunately both of our main political parties are radical. The populace should be afraid of both.

Whether we like what is being said or not there is a freedom of speech/press in this country. No one can make me listen to something if I don't want to. The people in control want to put in place a form of censorship. If they pass this places like Highlander radio will be next. There will be some one monitoring our political forum and then watch out!! They will then shut us down, or worse yet come look for those of us that don't reflect their views. If we keep giving up our freedoms for security or fairness we will soon have no freedom.

Well, according to this Wikipedia article, Obama is against adopting the Fairness Doctrine as law, so its likely to be vetoed.

This whole rigmarole about the Fairness Doctrine is a "red herring" designed to draw our attention away from the lefts real plan to slowly increase their control of the media via a number of small changes in the law (which they'll call "common sense improvements").

A fascist is one who uses the governing polity and laws only for ones advantage to gain power, but acts without regard to the law and polity - trods them under foot - once one has power. More specifically:

"A form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion." [Robert O. Paxton, "The Anatomy of Fascism," 2004]

Now who fits these nickers? I do not know how any syndicated conservative radio types in the USA could possibly be considered a fascist. But as time progresses, President Obama and congress do seem to have an increasing number of striking similarities...

englishmix;

I did not say that they were all borderline Fascist. I said " I got the feeling that some were" I have no truck with extremism be it religious, political, or social. To some of these ultra-conservatives, liberalism equates to socialism equates to communism. I have said it before and I say it again liberalism is not a swear word nor is socialism. I think you will find that most of your allies and friends have a form of social democracy in place. Not extreme socialism but a moderate form such as we have. After all one of your Presidents said something to the effect that if your neighbours house is on fire you help by lending him your garden hose. What I see is far to much influence from your so called religious right who I believe would rather see a Theocracy than a Democracy.
