We conservatives, concerned that a potential lefty supermajority will try to impose the “Fairness” Doctrine to destroy talk radio (the backbone and beating heart of American conservatism today), warn the nation that an unprecedented assault on the First Amendment rights of average Americans is imminent.
“No – what, us? Noooooooo!” responds the left. “Why, Barack has even said he won’t push to reinstate the Doctrine!”
To them – disingenuous or naive as the case my be – that closes the discussion.
Of course, it’s not closed.
New Mexico liberal Senator Jeff Bingaman:
Nah. Nothing to worry about.
Look; it’s probably natural for lefties to expect that their elected representatives do have the Constitution’s, and the nation’s, best interests at heart.
It’s just that the documentary evidence doesn’t seem to bear this out in any way.
