Pelosi Supports Return of (mislabled) Fairness Doctrine

Pelosi Supports Return of Fairness Doctrine


AIM Column | By Bethany Stotts | June 26, 2008



The mainstream media have remained virtually silent about Pelosi’s support for the Fairness Doctrine.

Talk radio’s suspicions of a movement to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine were confirmed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Tuesday June 24 during her comments at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast. When John Gizzi, an editor for Human Events asked Speaker Pelosi whether she favored a return of the Fairness Doctrine, she told him an unhesitating “yes,” reports Gizzi.

Moreover, when Gizzi asked if she supports the Broadcaster Freedom Act, “She added that ‘the interest in my caucus is the reverse’ and that New York Democratic Rep. ‘Louise Slaughter has been active behind this [revival of the Fairness Doctrine] for a while now,’ he writes.

Representative Slaughter (D-NY) introduced the 2004 MEDIA Act to bring back the Fairness Doctrine and reintroduced it in 2005 as the Fairness and Accountability in Broadcasting Act.

Conservative critics have been very concerned that Congress had supported a one-year moratorium on the return of the Fairness Doctrine, but has not supported the Broadcaster Freedom Act (BFA), which would permanently prevent these regulations from returning.

Representative Mike Pence (R-Ind.) introduced the BFA last June, where it is still awaiting a vote. As of June 25, 200 Members have signed a discharge petition which would force the House to make an up or down vote on the legislation, but an additional 18 signatures are needed.

“And so far, not one single House Democrat has signed our petition for an up-or-down vote on broadcast freedom...and now we know why,” announced Pence in response to Pelosi’s comments. “I say to Speaker Pelosi with respect: Defending freedom is the paramount interest of every Member of the American Congress.”

Just listen to the wording of the doctrine itself!!!! Obama has enjoyed an unprecedented level of unfair support from all media circles everywhere, yet I don't hear them complaining about unfairness there. Practically every Hollywood star is on the Obama train, and we hear and read about it daily. This amounts to free advertising for Obama. The news organizations are hiding behind the fact that Obama is the hottest news story around by planting patsy stories about him everywhere. Few (if any) discuss his policy positions, yet when they do, they are quite damaging to him (like his flopping stance on Iraq).


Fairness? Will this fairness extend to people's salaries as well? Is it fair that some people make more money than others???

Wake up folks - Fairness Doctrine is nothing more than Socialism 101...
