Edwards dropping out, proves the Equal Time rule needs to be updated

"The rule was created because FCC thought the stations could easily manipulate the outcome of the elections."

I also think the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated.

If this was done, the talking heads like Limbaugh and Tweety (and the M$M, in general) would not be affecting the American political landscape as much as they have.
