Antonia sure looks butch, doesn't she?!
I hate to break it to him (or her, depending on which picture above is correct), but the Fairness Doctrine only applied to BROADCAST television: TV and radio stations. It would not have prevented the launch of Fox News Channel (the only network the jackass author of this article could possibly have been talking about ... and lying about.
And, of course, it never stopped the broadcast news media from being overtly liberal all those years anyway. The only place it was ever really enforced was on talk radio, where opinion was clearly labeled as opinion. As long as you claimed to be "impartial news", you were left alone, no matter how partial you actually were.
Which I guess is my nice way of saying STFU, Canadians, when you don't have a damn clue what you're talking about.
