“With the stink of public corruption blanketing Washington, with our elected officials passing the single largest spending bill in our nation’s history without even reading or debating it, with the increasing nationalization of our financial institutions, with almost dictatorial control of Congress by one political party, and with increasing signs we are becoming a socialistic country, Americans need more dynamic talk show hosts like Savage, not less,” said Thompson.

Conservative talk-radio hosts such as Dr. Savage have been so effective in rallying public outcry against many aspects of the liberal agenda that Democrat politicians have increasingly called for a return to the “Fairness Doctrine,” Orwellian- speak for censorship.

Thompson commented, “If the Doctrine is so fair, why are the liberals limiting it only to radio?  Why not television, the internet, and all the print media?

Dems target right-wing talk radio

“We are coming to rule and to regulate you”- update:

Will the US be under totalitarian rule soon? The un-Democratic Socialists are launching an all out assault on the airwaves to perpetuate Socialism: Just yesterday we reported: Now Willie Clitman is lobbying for the Fairness Doctrine
Rep. Maurice Hinchey is targeting right-wing radio.    

Rep. Maurice Hinchey is targeting right-wing radio.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — More and More Democrats in Congress are calling for action that Republicans warn could muzzle right-wing talk radio.

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.

“I think the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated,” Hinchey told CNNRadio. Hinchey says he could make it part of a bill he plans to introduce later this year overhauling radio and t-v ownership laws.

Listen: Hinchey says he wants to make talk-radio “more fair”- (like CNN and CNBC???)

* The chutzpah of these totalitarian Socialist swine is unbelievable…

Democratic Senators Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Tom Harkin of Iowa added their voices recently to those calling for a return of the regulation.

Republicans oppose the Fairness Doctrine, arguing it would be wrong for the federal government to monitor political speech on the airwaves, in order to require opposing views.

Republican Congressman Greg Walden, a former owner of five radio stations in Oregon including a “classic rock” station joked that the Fairness Doctrine is “the musical equivalent” of “every time we’d play a classic rock song we’d have to play a polka!”

Now Willie Clitman is lobbying for the Fairness Doctrine

The list of prominent Democrats who are now calling for The Censorship Doctrine seems to grow daily.    Now, impeached, disbarred ex-President Bill Clinton has weighed in.

Today, radio host Mario Solis Marich asked former President Bill Clinton if it was time for “some type of enforced media accountability.”

Well, you either ought to have the Fairness Doctrine or we ought to have more balance on the other side,” Clinton said, “because essentially there’s always been a lot of big money to support the right wing talk shows and let face it, you know, Rush Limbaugh is fairly entertaining even when he is saying things that I think are ridiculous….”

Clinton said that there needs to be either “more balance in the programs or have some opportunity for people to offer countervailing opinions.” Clinton added that he didn’t support repealing the Fairness Doctrine, an act done under Reagan’s FCC.

                      

* At the hight of the cartoon riots Slick Willie was on a speaking tour in the Arabian Gulf fiefdoms, where he declared “the cartoons should not be printed because they hurt the sensitivites of Muslims” – this from an ex-president who is sworn to uphold free speech….

By whoring for Arabia Slick Willie has collected over 200 million dollars!

Unable to compete in the marketplace of ideas, liberals are reduced to censoring free speech.
Chavez- and Mugabe-style.  
It represents utter disregard of the Constitutions’s First Amendment.  It is flatly repugnant.

Such an effort to suppress political speech is criminal and must be stopped.
