Posted on 02/08/2009 10:50:14 AM PST by Nachum
WASHINGTON Another Democratic U.S. senator has gone on record as supporting the reinstatement of the so-called "Fairness Doctrine," adding, "I feel like that's gonna happen."
Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich., told radio host and WND columnist Bill Press yesterday when asked about whether it was time to bring back the so-called "Fairness Doctrine": "I think it's absolutely time to pass a standard. Now, whether it's called the Fairness Standard, whether it's called something else I absolutely think it's time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all have to step up and be responsible. And, I think in this case, there needs to be some accountability and standards put in place."

This Cow should try to have a household Doctrine that keeps her Husband out of Whore Houses.
By the time Barry’s first four years are over, there won’t be enough space left on the internet for his list.
Mr. Stabenow is an exec at Err America. Corrupt cow.
Exactly. She should not be allowed to vote on this issue. This is the very definition of conflict of interest.
Her office claims her husband is not in the broadcasting bidness anymore. Maybe he has become a pimp?
Oh yes Senator, having 95 percent of the media as an arm of the DNC is just not enough. You must get rid of the few who disagree with you. You commie POS.
So when does the book burning begin?
as a poem, its the worst ive ever read.
the so-called “Fairness Doctrine, is a violation of the 1st amendment.
I also believe what the democrats have in mind is something that will apply only to republicans.
Arlen Specter is a Lawyer.
While elected to represent the people of Pennsylvania he instead has always represented the Law.
He votes on bills like a lawyer.
Hopefully he will be unseated in the next election.
A lot of people are unaware that Senator Debbie Stabenows husband had been seeing a shrink. He was concerned that Debbie was trying to poison him. The psychiatrist tried to convince him it was all in his head. The psychiatrist finally agreed to visit with Debbie to determine the roots of his fear. After spending a short time with Debbie, the psychiatrists advice was to drink the poison.
Debbies husband did not take his advice. They are reports he took up spending time with another woman instead.
The only way her husband would know the difference between a whorehouse and home is that he would meet a better class of people in a whorehouse. There is no bottom when you talk about how low our selected representatives can sink.
Well, the good news is that there wont be book burnings.
The bad news is that there wont be any open burnings because of Gobal Warming.
Scary true. Most of the Pubs could care less about civil liberties. When they were in office, all they did was shoot the pork to their buddies.
we just need to email the office of Stabenow and say “I will support this if you apply the fairness doctrine to federally funded schools”. That should shut her up.
LOL. Obviously, you've never heard of Maya Angelou. She makes Elizabeth Alexander sound like Keats.
EXCELLENT! keep up the list!
adding to it will shock even the most liberal kool aid drinker
as for the fairness doctrine... once it comes to pass, there will be an alternative.
Let’s start with accountability and transparency in government first and see how that goes.
I love your ‘The List’. If you put it on a ping list please add me to it.....thanks.
**I also believe what the democrats have in mind is something that will apply only to republicans.**
