The "Mythical" Fairness Doctrine

The Left continues to insist that the "Fairness Doctrine" is a Minotaur (or whatever mythical creature you choose) meant to conjure fear in the rank and file...but I wonder what they are thinking now with each news story confirming the existence of such a beast...

"...Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told CNSNews.com on Thursday that she supports an amendment to a Senate bill that would force the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to “take actions to encourage and promote diversity in communication media ownership and to ensure that broadcast station licenses are used in the public interest.”

The amendment’s language is viewed by many media experts as a means to regulate conservative talk radio, particularly popular programs such as the Rush Limbaugh Show and the Sean Hannity Show, among many others..." (source)

I hope all the lefties that espouse the importance of free speech with stand with Conservatives and oppose this.
