yeah -but unfortunately - your little parable could just as easily be taken the other way. Rush lands a thousand small hits on the Obama administration and they release one giant Fairness doctrine strike and take down the entire media.
re: they release one giant Fairness doctrine strike and take down the entire media.
Really??? How did I miss that. Seems like it would have been in the papers on certainly on the news from MSM.
Liberals think if they treat something as a fact enough times it will become a fact. The Fairness Doctrine is under attack, no doubt about it. It’s our job to see to it that that attack is repelled, and Rush is a big part of our defenses.
To paraphrase Mark Twain, I think reports of the death of the fairness doctrine are premature. I don’t want to minimize the danger facing it, but I also don’t want us to underestimate the power we have in our grasp if we will use it. Part of using that power means dropping the idea that we have to be so damned nice about our conservatism. The Liberals are evil and nasty for a reason and that’s because they know it works. We need to borrow a page from their playbook and turn that tactic back on the once in awhile. They use it as their weapon of first choice. We need to see it as a weapon of choice in certain clearly defined instances, then turn it loose with gusto.
