http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=56827 This is part of an advertisement, but: In short: They want talk radio crippled before it does any more "damage." But beyond the "Fairness Doctrine," which was defeated – for the time being – a few weeks ago, Sen. John Kerry has gone so far as to call for bringing back the equal-time provisions. That would mandate not just "fairness" in broadcasts – by forcibly requiring that "conservative" views be balanced with "liberal" views – but actual minute-for-minute, second-by-second measurements of what is said on the public airwaves. Sharpton said: "It is our feeling that this is only the beginning. We must have a broad discussion on what is permitted and not permitted in terms of the airwaves." Wow, Carl Marx would be proud. Still other attacks are based on charges of "bigotry and hate speech." Currently, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, John Gibson and Michael Smerconish have all been declared to be under scrutiny for their on-air "hate speech." Interesting that conservative viewpoints are "hate speech".
