Here Is the Left's Idea Of the "Fairness Doctrine"...
DU Looks Into Their Idea Of the Future Utopia:
(One of ersatz geniuses at DU has penned his idea of the type of news broadcast announcement he wants to hear in the future... YOU wanna live in a world like this? See how, not only is a level playing field not in their mind's eye, they have to skew things totally in their favor before they think things are 'fair' .)
President Gore Signs the Media Accountability Act - June 2, 2009
AP: In a Rose Garden Ceremony yesterday, President Al Gore signed the Media Accountability Act, legislation designed to bring back fairness and accuracy to the media as part of President Gore's "Changing the Marketplace of Ideas" initiative.
Vice President Barack Obama called the legislation "long overdue". Secretary of State Bill Clinton, traveling in the middle east with National Security Adviser Valery Plame Wilson, praised the bill, wishing it had passed some 20 years earlier.
Attorney General John Edwards said he was already making plans to create a Media Fairness task force in the Department of Justice.
Senator Franken said he was looking forward to listening to the Rush Limbaugh show and watching FOXNEWS later that evening. He was quick to point out that any media outlet claiming they were "fair and balanced" would pay double fines. (LSK)

A more thorough rogues gallery of thieves, thugs, dissemblers, users, flim-flam men and women I've never seen! Read R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.'s Book "The Clinton Crack-Up". If the Clinton presidency was 100 days long, it's fair to say that BOTH Clintons spent 85 of those days ethically challenged, scamming Americans, selling favors to the highest bidder, engaging in the lowest conduct, and perpetrating the worst abuses of national office ever seen!
Now, with this smarmy bit of faux legislation--penned by one of the hippy dipsticks at DU as the Road To Glory--he wishes to shut up the very people who did little enough to call the Clintons on all their chicanery while they were in office and afterwards. Doesn't it just figure that they want every scrap and morsel of slight-of-hand, shell game, and out-an-out thievery done by them thoroughly swept under the carpet?
Yes, 'restore' that deluded jackass Gore to the office that was 'stolen' from him and then, dontcha know, the Islamic threat will disappear like so much Edwards' hair spray! Why, we'll have Camelot back again! (Of course, they won't quite be able to raise Bobby from the dead, but Gore 'is the next best thing' (I jist know it, 'cause Bubba said so!)
This 'Doctrine Of Fairness' is nothing more than a Democrat party clean up crew. It will hide the worst abuses of their nutbar candidates, aid and abet the already-liberal attack-dogs of the present MSM, and further entrench their political position--while miring the rest of us in Hugo Chavez-like media control and flagrant communism.
You want the true end of free speech? Just vote for a Democrat in 2008.
