In the last several days as a part of my surfing the Hate Media, I have heard Hannity, Limbaugh and Jim Bohannon grousing about the Fairness Doctrine. They are worried to death that the American Public might once again have the right to be heard on the broadcast media. Readers who are interested in in the public having access to the airwaves need to light up your Congress Persons and the Obama transition team. The Fairness Doctrine was rarely invoked when it was in force, and it tramples nobody’s First Amendment rights. It requires that the folks who are licensed to operate on public airwaves, which are owned by us all, provide reasonable opportunity for all sides of controversial issues to be aired. I don’t necessarily want to generate enough buzz to scare manaagement into taking these hate mongers off the air but I do expect mangement to pony up the time for adequate response to the poisonous vapors they spew. Licensees who think they have First Amendment rights that trump the rights of the public should transfer their licenses to me and I will be happy to see that all sides of controversial issues are fully and fairly aired. I certainly would not want their little First Amend feelings to be bruised or trampled. I also will be happy to buy a wheelbarrow so I can haul the millions of dollars these folks make from sitting a-squat and exploiting a public property down to my bank.
