17. If freedom of speech applies to Armed Forces Radio then what time is the Communist Party program on?

Obviously freedom of speech does not require Armed Forces Radio to carry every viewpoint. They already apply a filter, this is just a discussion about a fine-grained detail of that filter.

It's amazing how rules that don't even exist come out of the woodwork when something is proposed that's not in line with the far right wing. For many decades a right wing filter has been applied on Armed Forces Radio, a filter that is significantly to the right of the position of the people of the country. Now when the people push back and want the filter to better reflect their values, a bogus rule that doesn't even make sense is marched out to illogically tell us we can't exercise control when control has always been exercised in the past.
