The latest video from CitizenLink examines the oppressive idea of the Fairness Doctrine, and liberals' hopes of returning this plague to our broadcast land.
The so-called Fairness Doctrine began in 1949 and gained prominence in the late 1960s. It was an FCC regulation requiring that if one viewpoint was expressed in broadcast, the opposing view had to also be broadcast.
Such lunacy only sounds fair in the liberal mind, where such nutty ideas are thought up that liberals feel the need to force normal people to give them an audience.
President Ronald Reagan did away with the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, and liberals have been trying to bring this socialist fossil back since then, but especially since the ascendancy of talk radio, which is almost entirely conservative.
Why is it almost entirely conservative? Is it because the evil media moguls will only allow the conservative viewpoint on talk radio...or is it because nobody wants to hear that drivel on the radio?
The abysmal failure and subsequent bankruptcy of the liberal attempt at talk radio, Air America, provides perhaps the best answer to that obvious question.
But with liberals back in charge of Congress, and now the White House, many liberals are drooling pools of spittle at the thought of once again being able to mandate the broadcast of their un-American ideas back-to-back with conservative radio programs.
And you can bet the same oppressive standard would be applied to Christian radio.
Homosexual activists and apologists are already working hard to silence Christians from speaking out about the immorality of homosexual behavior. Colorado passed a law a few months ago that only allows men to use women's restrooms if they "feel like a woman," but also prohibits the publication of "discriminative" material that is critical of homosexuality.
It's a sure bet that if liberals succeed in getting the Orwellian Fairness Doctrine re-established, they'll ensure that the pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, anti-Christian message goes out on what will have once-been Christian radio.
In his Stoplight® video commentary, Stuart Shepard explains how the efforts by Democratic leaders in Congress to force the so-called Fairness Doctrine on talk radio are like a pesky salesman who keeps trying to sell you something you don't want.
