Howard Dean begins by saying how important the First Amendment is and saying that it has served America well all of these years. And then, he completely negates that statement by saying, “But I would bring back the Fairness Doctrine so you couldn’t have a spectacle of a Fox flooze which makes stuff up and is a propaganda outlet, you would actually have to have some sanctioned human beings talk to the other side. And MSNBC would have to do the same- they would have to have conservatives on there too…”

Can they have fake Lefties on, the way state-run media has fake/straw-man conservatives on?

Why is it that these idiots say FNC makes things up BUT they never actually mention a specific story that was supposedly made up. Talk about making things up!

I’m sick of hearing how Fox is “right-wing propaganda” that “knowingly spreads complete lies”. There are never any actual lies presented as evidence, but the constant drumbeat has an effect on people who might otherwise have an open mind.

Censorship comes very naturally to liberals.

What a flake.

Another jerk that didn't pay any attention to the last election.

Of course he wants FOX and the talks shows gone...then the lefty channels like NPR and MSNBC could spread any lies they want without being called on them.

Communism/Socialism cannot win over the truth...there is no way it can happen as long as someone is focusing the spotlight of truth on them.

Again, a lefty throws out charges without any evidence whatsoever...none, nada, zilch.

State run media is a direct violation of the First Amendment and we have the 2nd Amendment in place to protect the First Amendment...boy, were those founding fathers wise or what?

I wonder if they ever get tired of advancing their agenda, not through selling their ideas, but by completely deceiving the American public.

It is NO COINCIDENCE that all this crap with "news" anchors at MSNBC is occurring at the same time that talks of a Fairness Doctrine revival is occurring.

MSNBC is simply the straw man here. The Progressives MUST throw out MSNBC so that it doesn't look like they are just going after FOX.

There's nothing “FAIR” about the Progressives' “Fairness Doctrine”. In fact, it's an attempt to stifle free speech and therefore unconstitutional. ‘Nough said!

That's who I was thinking of, but I can't recall his name and it's not worth trying to remember.

...sanctioned human beings...? Whatever the heck that is it sure sounds frightening.

Ever since the election the memo has gone out that in talking about instituting a fairness doctrine, whenever Fox News is mentioned they need to be "fair" and throw in MSNBC. This exonerates ABC, CBS, NBC (Poppa), NPR, PBS, CNN, CNBC, yada yada.

Hey Howie! How about extending the "Fairness Doctrine" to the proportional hiring of liberal professors to "conservative" ones? I could add many more but you get the point I'm sure.

So, just to be “fair”, we will throw out the *most* watched cable news channel, and the *least* watched cable news channel.

Sure, that works for me.

Does he really NOT GET IT this bad, or is he just faking for effect?
