This is from Fox News, which maybe means conservatives will actually pay attention:
President Obama opposes any move to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine, a spokesman told FOXNews.com Wednesday.
The statement is the first definitive stance the administration has taken since an aide told an industry publication last summer that Obama opposes the doctrine — a long-abolished policy that would require broadcasters to provide opposing viewpoints on controversial issues.
“As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated,” White House spokesman Ben LaBolt told FOXNews.com.
Obama opposes the Fairness Doctrine. The vast majority of members of Congress from both parties opposes it. The Congressional leadership has said it is not on the table. This still won’t stop the right wing from sending out fund raising letters claiming otherwise.
Tell a conservative that a liberal wants to take away their guns, bibles, or talk radio and you can count on many conservatives falling for it. Alex Koppelman finds some rightwing bloggers are still continuing to promote this manufactured outrage.
