CNN has a scary sounding audio of Rep. Maurice Henchey (D-NY) talking about about how the airwaves need “more fairness.” They got one thing wrong in their reporting, though:
Representative Maurice Hinchey, a Democrat from New York is the latest to say he wants to bring back the “Fairness Doctrine,” a federal regulation scrapped in 1987 that would require broadcasters to present opposing views on public issues.
Nope, he’s not “the latest” – he’s been a leading proponent in the House of bringing back the Fairness Doctrine for some time now.
I urge you to write your Congressmen in both the House and Senate – no matter Dem or Rep – and tell them how you feel about the idea. I know there’s a lot going on right now in the world, but this is a fundamental issue we can’t let fall by the wayside.
