The Fairness Doctrine

Yesterday on Laura Ingraham's Fox News show there was a discussion regarding the possible return of the fairness doctrine.

I feel very strongly it should never return. Among other things modern day talk radio would be severely crippled without the programming freedom it has encouraged. Whether the opinions are from the left or the right, stations should be free to program Ed Schultz or Rush Limbaugh or whomever they desire. Let the marketplace decide what content stays and what goes.

Also, there was a very bazaar comment about how Britney Spears replaced local music on corporate owned radio stations across the country. Odd.

Watch the segment for yourself right here.
