The liberals have nothing to say that I want to hear. They can stuff their “Fairness” Doctrine. If I want any crap out of a liberal, I’ll unscrew his head and dip it out!

Closing off the last avenue for public dissent.

I have a feeling this could be the straw that breaks the camels back.

And, of course, the same will apply to TV “news” programs ... right? And newspapers and magazines, etc?

Talk radio is already accountable.

It is accountable to its listeners (and advertisers).

Indeed. I believe that any elected official wanting to pass a law like this will come across a lot of heat.

Mark Levin, the Great One, let us know that stab-a-cow’s husband was an exec VP of err Amerika, bailing out shortly before they went bankrupt and then moved on to some liberal network in DC. HUGE CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

Lest we forget what the MSM hides for a Democrat and Air America...

Stabenow’s Husband in Prostitution Bust

TROY, Mich. (AP) — The husband of Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow told authorities that he used the Internet to arrange a $150 sexual tryst with a prostitute at a metropolitan Detroit hotel, police said.

Thomas Athans, 46, co-founder of the liberal TalkUSA Radio network, was stopped by police who were investigating Internet-based prostitution at the hotel, according to a police report obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press under the state Freedom of Information Act.

Athans, in a statement issued by his attorney, apologized and said he “fully cooperated with law enforcement. My family and I are dealing with this matter in a personal and private way.”

Stabenow, in an interview with The Associated Press, said she wanted “folks to know that I’m grateful for their prayers and support and this is a family matter that is very difficult but we are going to work through it.”

Stabusnow speaks through her Nazi tongue. She doesn’t want accountability. She wants to silence free, political speech. You can bet the Nazi attack on conservative speech won’t stop with talk radio. The brown shirts will attack all opposition.

Instead of being a rubber stamp for 0, tell us why this payoff bill should be hung around the necks of my kids and grandkids.

Yep. But did we expect it happen this quickly?

Well, I suppose we did, huh?

Not to worry, they will face the onslaught of the radio shows’ listeners. It will be fun to watch.

because their ideology is so logically indefensible.

His wife weighs half as much as Rhode Island it looks from here.

Wholly Cow!

Must be all that pork she has brought to Michigan.

That's why their attempt at competition on the AM talk radio genre continually fails. Talk radio interacts with the population. All the other "media" are a unidirectional transfer. When the audience can talk back and challenge what is being said, the weak players fall apart.
