Immigration bill bust - Fairness Doctrine will come back

Who's Sorry Now?

Whew, that was close. It almost looked like the US was going to have to DO something about immigration. NEWS FLASH: The borders will be blurred eventually through SPP. Maybe they will have to wait until all the baby boomer talk radio fans begin to die off, but it will happen.

And what about all those politicians - right or left - who supported their favorite talk radio host? Don't be fooled by the posturing by the House Republicans....they can't wait to secretly bring back the Fairness Doctrine, whether they're conservative or not, to SHUT UP the talkers - who killed the bill - that has to pass one way or the other.

Good or bad, talkers rule, just ask Trent Lott.

House Republican lawmakers are preparing to fight anticipated Democratic efforts to regulate talk radio by reviving rules requiring stations to balance conservative hosts such as Rush Limbaugh with liberals such as Al Franken.

Conservatives fear that forcing stations to make equal time for liberal talk radio would cut into profits so drastically that radio executives would opt to scale back on conservative radio programming to avoid escalating costs and interference from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
