The lefty moonbats are increasing the calls for an end to conservative radio otherwise known as the Fairness Doctrine. Michael Calderone over at the Politico reported a conversation between Bill Press and Senator Debbie Stabenow on his blog:
BILL PRESS: Yeah, I mean, look: They have a right to say that. They’ve got a right to express that. But, they should not be the only voices heard. So, is it time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine?
SENATOR DEBBIE STABENOW (D-MI): I think it’s absolutely time to pass a standard. Now, whether it’s called the Fairness Standard, whether it’s called something else — I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all have to step up and be responsible. And, I think in this case, there needs to be some accountability and standards put in place.
BILL PRESS: Can we count on you to push for some hearings in the United States Senate this year, to bring these owners in and hold them accountable?
SENATOR DEBBIE STABENOW (D-MI): I have already had some discussions with colleagues and, you know, I feel like that’s gonna happen. Yep.
There was no discussion about going after the left leaning MSM which has admitted being in the tank for Obama and trying to sway the election in his favor. This is only meant to get the Glenn Becks, Rush Limbaughs, Sean Hannitys and the like. Bill Press did his job by not probing for the facts like any competant journalist type should do. He never once mentioned or asked the Senator about her husband. And why should he have asked about the husband? Because her husband co-founded the liberal TalkUSA Radio Network and is Executive Vice-President of the liberal Air America. I am sure it is just a coincidence that Senator Stabenow has taken up this cause.
I sure wish someone would take up the cause of the Constitution on the left.
