Fuck the Fairness Doctrine

One of the most annoying things about politics is the puerile tendency to want to re-fight yesterday’s battles. Republicans may have long memories, but there are a few on our side that seem to.

There are blogo-rumblings that the Fairness doctrine might be reinstituted. Not only is this a form of censorship, it is paternalistic. At this point, if there’s anyone left that doesn’t know Fox News is a right-wing propaganda machine probably also doesn’t know that smoking is bad for you.

In other words, people get it.

God. Can you imagine? Jon Stewart having to have some douche like Tucker Carlson walk-back his anti-Bush joking?

Oy. The stupid… it burns!
