What’s Fair about That?

Democrats want to censor conservatives and call it “fairness”. This is leftist double-speak at its finest.

If we’re going to bring back the “Fairness” Doctrine why single out one form of media? Why not all of them? We should force the New York Times to give half its column inches to conservatives. We should make the Daily Kos give half its space to us INFDLs. We should fire half of the academics working in our universities and replace them with the conservative radio personalities who are going to be out of a job.

Come on, if we’re going to be fair, let’s be fair.

Sean adds: Yeah it's pretty inconceivable that they're even talking about this in this day and age. The shoddy "logic" seems to be that since the airwaves are publicly licenced, the government has the right to dictate "fairness". I even think there was a Supreme Court decision in favor of it in the sixties. If I can dig it up, I'll link to it. It truly is a remnant of the original "progressive" movement, which also opposed the teaching of evolution in schools.

Look on the bright side, presumably you'd see Victor Davis Hansen and Christopher Hitchens team up against Ben Afleck and Carrot Top on that Bill Maher shit-swirl of a show.
