More Democrats Who Supposedly Don't Want To Bring Back The Fairness Doctrine

Maurice Hinchey is the latest Democrat to put the lie to the claim that we don’t need to worry about the Fairness Doctrine coming back. Clearly, the Democrats are putting up trial balloons to see how well the public might take to a reintroduction of the Fairness Doctrine. One hopes that they will see those balloons shot down in short order.

Meanwhile, I loved this retort to Fairness Doctrine fans:

Republican Congressman Greg Walden, a former owner of five radio stations in Oregon including a “classic rock” station joked that the Fairness Doctrine is “the musical equivalent” of “every time we’d play a classic rock song we’d have to play a polka!”

There just has to be a way to use that retort in a 30-second ad against a revival of the Fairness Doctrine.
