Priceless image! LOL!!
It is a classic. I think I would love it a whole lot better were she representing some other state. But, I laugh whenever I see it or post it.
The following is the response that I received:
February 6, 2009
Thank you . . .
. . for contacting me about the fairness doctrine, which required broadcasters on public airways to allow time for contrasting points of view. I appreciate that you have taken the time to communicate your views and concerns with me.
The Federal Communications Commission first implemented this doctrine in 1949. At the time, it was concerned about the limited number of radio and television broadcast frequencies being controlled by advocates with a singular point of view. The FCC abandoned the doctrine in the 1980s. Should any proposal to reinstate this doctrine come before me in the Senate, I will be sure to keep your views and concerns in mind.
Thank you again for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to do so again if I can be of assistance to you in the future.
United States Senator
I have done searches for articles with the exact name, knowing I saw it earlier on FR, and it comes up empty, I have to say 9 times out of 10. Not sure what is up with the search function, but it just does not work correctly, and sometimes I think it’s just so the FR thread police can have some busy work.
it is important not to let leftists frame the argument. ask the mod to put censorship doctrine in parentheses next to the title.
