So now they propose that a government agency decide what is fair. I don't see any reason why the market place can't decide what folks want to listen to. I'd rather learn from success than Democrat failure.
Air America fails because folks on the left don't listen to talk radio, no matter what the subject. That has been shown time and again, for decades.

I suggest its reemergence, not for those on the left but for folks like Paul and Independent voices that get no airtime because of the way broadcasting is structured after deregulation.

While the original 1949 Fairness Doctrine is gone, it is not dead, nor are the principles of fairness that will bring elements back. The ability for ALL views to be heard is fundamental in this country and since broadcast media is the new town square that has to be, and will be addressed.

Hey, why listen to others, when you know it all already.... right?

Actually, I think it is the controlled nature of it all. There is no free debate on Talk Radio, the host has a screener get rid of callers with opinions he doesn't like, hangs up on those who get thru, interrupts, etc, you know, like the Sean Hannity Show. The place you find Democrats is on the internet, where they are destroying fascists, like you Bruce, for instance, all over the place.

Sorry about needing such a tight fist there.

In other words, places where they don't have to come up with any more proof then articles from "The Huffington Post", "move on.org" and such. Well that makes sense.

I think it is more like, we tend to READ newspapers and magazines and books and glean our own opinions from others and listen to MUSIC. We just don't need the yammering of three or four people trying to tell us what to think.

Plus, I have never figured out how folks get work done and actually listen to that.
