35. What are you talking about?
The Fairness Doctrine has to do with Broadcast radio, AM & FM and TV. You know the "Public Airwaves".

What do you think Rush, Hanney and all the other reality challenged wingnuts use with hardly a centralest, let alone any liberal voices to be heard?

We need the Fairness Doctrine reinstated.
