Clinton calls for Censorship?

Apparently Mr. Bill Clinton thinks there needs to be “more balance” regarding talk radio, etc., even though he has to admit that the reason talk radio leans “right” (i.e., conservative) is because the left-wing propaganda is so mawkishly ridiculous (and cynical) that no one tunes into it…   Remember Al Franken’s failed radio program on Air America?  Unbelievable.  The liberal left doesn’t know how to communicate except by means of snobbish appeals to one another… They are simply out of touch with “regular people” — and therefire regularly exude an elitist attitude….

Clinton wants ‘more balance’ on airwaves

Even though no member of Congress has scheduled hearings on the Fairness Doctrine, it remains on a hot topic on both liberal and conservative shows.

Today, radio host Mario Solis Marich asked former President Bill Clinton if it was time for “some type of enforced media accountability.”

“Well, you either ought to have the Fairness Doctrine or we ought to have more balance on the other side,” Clinton said, “because essentially there’s always been a lot of big money to support the right wing talk shows and let face it, you know, Rush Limbaugh is fairly entertaining even when he is saying things that I think are ridiculous….”

Clinton said that there needs to be either “more balance in the programs or have some opportunity for people to offer  countervailing opinions.” Clinton added that he didn’t support repealing the Fairness Doctrine, an act done under Reagan’s FCC.

In the past week, a couple Democratic Senators, Debbie Stabenow and Tom Harkin, have both spoken favorably about the Fairness Doctrine, or holding hearings on radio accountability.
