34. Our constitution states that the Executive Branch can enact emergency actions such as this

 

While the Fairness Doctrine has been rendered null and void by the Reaganazis in the 80's, the fact is that if there is a threat to this country through actions that have been proven criminal, such as negating oil drilling for safety reasons or restraining public discord, a progressive president not only has a right and prerogative, but a DUTY to impose sanctions from the executive level. Once he's reelected, it will be far easier as he won't have to worry about another term. At least that's my take.

EDIT: Actually, what he CAN do is to mandate localization requirements, which will nullify national talk radio. That's an economic and commerce clause issue, not a first amendment issue. That is what he would most probably do, and one that can pass muster with the Supreme Court, at least 5 of the justices.
