ANOTHER APPEAL TO RESTORE EQUAL TIME/FAIRNESS DOCTRINE…
How have we allowed our public airwaves to be commandeered so largely by one set of opinions, and one so outside the American mainstream to boot…FOR FREE!? It’s like we’ve been taken-over by some cult, government-subsidized! Actually broadcasting, especially (AM) radio I’m sad to say, has become a government subsidy to the Republican Party and Big Business, and their “conservative Christian” sops. Whole stations have dedicated themselves to being their mouthpieces, 24/7, one program after another after another (Talk about “gummint programs”!!!), daypart after daypart after daypart, libel after libel after libel. Some of them don’t even report the news ‘straight’, but spoon-feed their fascist audiences, ala Faux News Channel. Not that they ever allowed much “liberalism” on the air before Reagan, usually just “conservatism” and ‘moderatism.’
GET THE GOP/CORPORATIONS/FUNDIE CHURCHES OFF WELFARE!!!!!
Or considering all the government money they get through other means, maybe a government-funded Opposition Network would be reasonable….
