When I look at the media, what I see is a den of liberal bedfellows. Sure there are occasional conservative leaning article, but those are usually condescending in some way. Think back 10 years or so, before widespread internet access, talk radio and Fox News … where was one to go for something besides liberal biased information. Word of mouth will only go so far. The media wasn’t quite as deferential back then, but still favored the liberal view. Why is there such an outcry at the few conservative media outlets? What is the proposed liberal solution to the SMALL conservative market, why they are taking steps to just make it go away? What else would one expect of them?
There are very few conservative leaning newspapers and those are pretty much locally distributed (thank God for the internet), so the attack will be mostly against the radio talk show industry. Here is how it will work. The fairness proposals will FORCE stations that carry conservative opinions (even liberal leaning stations that misspeak) to offer equal time for liberal rebuttals. Why you ask, is this an attack against conservatives; you see, liberals have repeatedly attempted to be compete on talk radio, but were complete abject failures despite the untold $millions$ they wasted in their efforts. The mere mention of ANYTHING that can be misconstrued as RIGHT leaning, no matter how minuscule, will immediately prompt a tsunami of demands from the liberal watchdog machine demanding equal time to present their opposing opinions. Eventually, the stations will become so inundated with DEMANDS for equal liberal time that they will be forced to STOP presenting the RIGHT perspective due to programming nightmares and the PROVEN inability of the LEFT to foster a listening audience. FAIRNESS … in a pig’s eye! --Sunday, April 01, 2007--
