WorldNetDaily: Democrats long for ‘Fairness Doctrine’: “Imposed originally by the Federal Communications Commission in 1949, the Fairness Doctrine was ruled unconstitutional by a U.S. Court of Appeals in 1986. The court found the rule was not a law but only a regulation, so it could be rescinded by the FCC ? which it was. President Reagan vetoed a 1987 attempt by Congress to make the policy law.
In 1993, Congress unsuccessfully attempted to re-institute the rule. At the time, talk-radio giant Rush Limbaugh rallied his supporters to help defeat the effort, which he dubbed the ‘Hush Rush’ bill.”
The lefties/marxists just do not get it. Their worthless prattle they are spewing on Air America even their base can’t stand. Kinda telling don’t ya think?
