The Fairness Doctrine.
"Apparently" they are thinking about making a sequel...only, not in any reality-based sense.
The House voted overwhelmingly Thursday to prohibit the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from using taxpayer dollars to impose the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters who feature conservative radio hosts such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity.Ever since Don Imus was booted from the airwaves, Right Wing gasbags are preemptively painting themselves as saintly victims whose days are numbered by First Amendment-hating zealots.
By a vote of 309-115, lawmakers amended the Financial Services and General Government appropriations bill to bar the FCC from requiring broadcasters to balance conservative content with liberal programming such as Air America.
Not surprisingly, Mallard swallows this hook, line, and sinker. And repeats the claim without basis. And then compounds it all by attempting a tenuous analogy between legislation and a movie sequel.
