Say No to a New Fairness Doctrine
New York's fearless senior Senator, Charles Schumer, has expressed interest in raising the so-called Fairness Doctrine back from the grave. Apparently liberals are not content with their present level of influence in American media. They want more, more, more.
Here is one more well-reasoned article about why the doctrine is completely unnecessary in a world of hundreds of televisions channels and millions of Web sites.
After you read this, be sure to send Senator Schumer a note letting him know that the Fairness Doctrine will only stifle free speech, not encourage it. He has not formerly announced new legislation, but why even give him a chance. The Fairness Doctrine is dead. Let it remain that way.
