Subject: Just for you Clave
Since you refused to read my previous posts regarding the Democrats
desire to bring back the "Fairness Doctrine" here is something just a
bit shorter that maybe your attention span can grasp.

From a recent radio interview.

BILL PRESS: Yeah, I mean, look: They have a right to say that. They=92ve
got a right to express that. But, they should not be the only voices
heard. So, is it time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine?

SENATOR DEBBIE STABENOW (D-MI): I think it=92s absolutely time to pass a
standard. Now, whether it=92s called the Fairness Standard, whether it=92s
called something else =97 I absolutely think it=92s time to be bringing
accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked
rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all
have to step up and be responsible. And, I think in this case, there
needs to be some accountability and standards put in place.

BILL PRESS: Can we count on you to push for some hearings in the
United States Senate this year, to bring these owners in and hold them
accountable?

SENATOR DEBBIE STABENOW (D-MI): I have already had some discussions
with colleagues and, you know, I feel like that=92s gonna happen. Yep.


UPDATE: A commenter points out that Stabenow is married to Tom Athans,
a liberal talk radio executive.

If you can't recognize the fact that the Founding Fathers intent in
drafting the First Amendment was precisely to protect political
speech
then you are too fucking stupid to be allowed to have an internent
connection. You may hurt yourself.

Idiot.

I don't know anyone - not a single person - personally, that supports
the fairness doctrine.

This thing is fucking ugly, lets hope it never sees the light of day.
I find it much easier to tolerate a legion of self-righteous twits
with limbaugh bumper stickers as opposed to government controls of
radio dialog.

Of course that goes for people like Howard Stern too. I don't want
James Dobson and Focus on the Family dictating what can and can't be
put on the air either (the control they were able to exert over the
FCC and other arenas during the Bush travesty was disheartening).

I'm not even a fan of Rush. I do find Republicans slightly less
repulsive than Democrats in general, but that's as much of a
compliment as I can give to either side.

With that said, of course what Rush says is free speech. You obviously
subscribe to a double standard here, and convince yourself that it's
okay by labeling controversial speech that you like as "free speech"
and labeling controversial speech that you don't like as something
different. "Hate speech," perhaps?

What's the harm in letting the man say what he wants to and letting
the people decide whether they should listen or not?

Boggles my mind that liberals feel perfectly okay about this
"censorship whenever we disapprove of what's being said" policy...

Censorship is about free speech, what Rush is now doing is not a free speech
issue. His emissions are paid political propaganda by and for the new
leader of the Republican, check that, Rushbot Party.

Please tell me you're only Trolling.
Please.

I would hate to think that there is a majority of people in this
country so ignorant as to believe that political speech is not fully
protected by the Constitution.

Please tell me I'm wrong about that.

Although he's probably trolling, there are plenty of people in this

I don't believe it's a majority. You find it mostly in the more Liberal
universities and other "Politically Correct" enclaves.

You rw types are so into free speech, full nudity and sex acts on broadcast
tv, open smoking and iv drug use all hours. X-rated language, explicit real
violence and sex rock music on NBC and CBS. Heard you were all in for the
new 24x7 Wahabism broadcast channel sponsored completely by the Saudis.
Good for you, quite liberal actually.

No, you have defined "political" speech to be what you say it is, which is
bullshit. Censorship is its already being practiced, as such, in a fair
system, your guy is out of line, needs to go.

Uh, pardonez moi?

You must have me confused with someone else.

IIRC, I have not tried to define the term "political speech".

You think that Rush's program does not deal in political speech?

Tell me more.

If Rush takes his load to satellite like Howard Stern or cable I have no
problems with his right to say whatever. On cable or satellite he could
smoke his cigars, snort oxycontin, sit in his underwear, drink fine brandy
and get blow jobs doing his show, no problem. He does that on broadcast tv
or radio, he's over the line. Same with the sputum he is producing now on
those broadcast airwaves, over the line. Get him off.

All this is just to get Rush off the air. Why do liberals care? They
think nobody listens to him anyway.

Rush is the closest thing to Joseph Goebbels that a formerly free society
can have. Rush is a paid political propaganda machine for a distinctly
small minority position (radical right wingnuts). He is an illness, a
destructive force, and needs to be off the air. His current target is
destruction of the Republican party, remaking it into the Rushbot party. So
from another point of view, maybe if he stays a little longer, not such a
bad thing :)

This reminds me a little of a television interview back in the '60s
during the so-called "Free Speech Movement" at Berkley. A bunch of
yahoos had just shouted down some speaker, and they interviewed one of
them. It went something like, "Don't you believe in free speech?"
"Hell yes, man!" "Do you believe everyone has a right to express their
ideas?" "Shit yeah, man!" "Well, then, don't you believe this fellow
had a right to make his speech?" "Hell no, man, he's a fascist!!"
