Don't Let This Happen To Us!

More on the possible and unthinkable RETURN of the Fairness Doctrine courtesy Al Peterson.

» Pelosi Backs Return Of Fairness Doctrine: That's according to John Gizzi, Political Editor of the conservative news website In a report posted today, Gizzi says the Speaker of the U.S. House "made it clear to me and more than 40 of my colleagues that a bill by Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN) to outlaw the Fairness Doctrine would not see the light of day in Congress during '08." Asked if she supported a return of the Doctrine, repealed more than two decades ago, Gizzi says the California Democrat replied, "Yes." Asked if she would allow a floor vote on Pence's anti-Fairness Doctrine bill this year if the congressman failed to get enough required signatures to move it out of committee, the Speaker replied, "No." This is an issue that could have a serious impact on Talk radio's future and you can read the full story here.
