    You thought wrong, and you're not a very good reader. I didn't say she said anything, I said she advocated the fairness policy. After these links, can you prove to me that she doesn't advocate the "fairness" policy? Thought not.

    Can you prove to me that her honest intention is to make the media fair, considering that the mainstream media is on her side? Good luck.

    Can you tell me that all the links I posted are just ramblings from paranoid right-wing nutjobs? Actually, I wouldn't be surprised. Criticizing, pathetically attempting to discredit, and bluntly dismissing evidence is something you left-wingers are pretty good at. I remember that woman on CNN whose program was barred from interveiws after she asked Joe Biden "isn't distributing wealth socialist?" I also remember how Biden completely dismissed that question.

    I personally think Bassman's a radical, but I agree with him on the so-called "fairness policy": HELL NO!!

    I can't imagine what the Libs would be saying if Bush et. al. had put in policies to shut up opposition to his policies or had similar rhetoric demonizing ACORN.
    -Computer $1500.00
    -Monthly internet connection $35.00
    -Monthly electricity bill $245.00
    -Convincing a Socialist that incentive is the mother of motivation,

    Priceless!

    The rule is: Once you vote in these polls, the vote is counted and the poll is locked!

    She did not make that claim. To aver that she did so is a terminological inexactitude.

    You completely ignored my last post, Penfold. You're not impressing anyone but yourself.

    Truth is once you back a liberal into a corner,(which can be done in a sentence or two), they start calling names and throwing personal insults. Who wants to listen to that on the radio?
    How about the majority of them start with personal insults. Comrad Troll Penfold being a prime example. Could you imagine hearing that on the radio beyond the time needed to change the channel?
    The left lost the ability, use logic or know what truth is with the embrace of moral relativism. Thus you get moral equivalence between acts like detaining terrorists and cutting off heads of innocents.
    If lawmakers and anti-gun groups were serious about reducing or ending gun crimes, they would turn their wrath toward the criminals. As it is, their efforts are not the solution to gun crimes they are part of the problem.
    Even if you gave liberals the answers on an ethics exam, they’d fail.

    The title "fairness doctrine" is innaccurate. It's an attempt to just balance out the veiws on Fox news while seeing no problem with other News sources that all have a slight left-wing undertaste if you look for it. It it were really fair, the left wing would lose alot of subtle, but strong support.

    In short, my answer is:

    HELL NO!!

    the only way it can be fair... is if it is volluntary... and if some type of small incentive is provided for doing so..

    such as a slight tax reduction for media outlets that apply it..

    but to force it.. by law... is anything but fair.

    I wonder if Bush had said that all major news networks had to have equal time for both sides would the left tried to start another civil war.
    I pledge allegiance...
