Actual title is : It’s baaack! The plan to kill talk radio. Group advising White House wants to restore controversial policy

An organization that helped to craft President Obama’s environmental policies has recommended the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine, purportedly as a method of silencing critics of the theory of global warming.

The Presidential Climate Action Project, or PCAP, last year released an extensive list of recommendations for the White House in a 75-page paper entitled, “Building the Obama Administration’s Climate Legacy.”

Primary among the PCAP’s recommendations is that the Department of Energy should join the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) what is known as the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

The Partnership, which distributes over $1 billion in grants, says it aims to “help communities nationwide improve access to affordable housing, increase transportation options, and lower transportation costs while protecting the environment.”

Another key recommendation in the report is the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine.

Reads the PCAP report: “National discourse today is tainted – and in some cases poisoned – by unbalanced ideological use of the public airwaves… To improve and better inform public discourse, it is time for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.”

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the Federal Communications Commission that required the holders of broadcast licenses to issues of public importance in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced.

What, this is a surprise? We all know that the Bill of Rights only applies to liberals. Conservatives aren’t worthy—just ask any liberal.

"“National discourse today is tainted – and in some cases poisoned – by unbalanced ideological use of the public airwaves…"

It's ironic how much truth there is in this statement. But not the way they're trying to portray it...

Free speech should only be “free” if one says the right(er... make that Left Big Nanny approved) things. Notice all the Leftnoids efforts are always presented as insuring “fairness”. But the reality is 180 from the rhetoric. Truth to liberals MUST be restricted... because Truth is most always politically incorrect! Truth to tyrants MUST always be punished... look what was done to the ultimate Truth teller 2,000 years ago!

My Prediction: they will instate the Fairness Doctrine.

It's an election year. The last thing they want is someone speaking out against them.

This is just another Obama front organization doing his bidding. He's got a lot of work ahead to accomplish in destroying our country and liberty in the short time he has left in office. These front organizations give him much-needed assistance.

This Fairness Doctrine stuff has to pass in order for him to pull off the coup de grace.....blanket amnesty for tens of millions of illegals by executive order at just the right time before the November election.

Obama has NEVER lost sight of his agenda. Some defeats, many roadblocks, occasional bad timing, he brushes it all aside and carries on.....NOTHING stops him from ploughing ahead with his agenda.

He is a many-headed monster like the poisonous Hydra of mythology - if you cut off one head two more take its place.....and each head is plotting the destruction of the U.S. from a different angle.

If we want to survive, as a nation, as a republic, we must flush the progressives from both parties, from all government offices, from the media, from positions of instruction, both public schools and universities. The
progressive political philosophy must be rendered ineffectual, laughable, an object of ridicule. The progressive must be excoriated and driven out of any position of authority. Any adherent of such an absurd idea should never be allowed control of more than a gandy stick.

The recent movie, “Downfall” was an excellent movie for many reasons, one of which was the casting that found the actor that played Goebbels. Everytime I watch the movie, the Goebbels character gets creepier..

Citizens United Decision would be in conflict with that mere policy.

This is like Obama signing the Super-SOPA treaty without the consent of the senate.

There’s already an unwritten Fairness Doctrine in place throughout talk radio. It defines “fairness” as giving establishment candidates 10 times more favorable content than Tea Party candidates.

Romney gets 10 every time Gingrich gets 1.

You know one of the planks of communism is goverment ownership of property? Recently 0 announced he wants to take foreclosed homes and rent them out, with the feds as the landlords. We ARE closer than we realize to them achieving their goals and most are totally close.

Try not paying your local property taxes for several years and you'll find out REAL quick that "government ownership of property" has already been achieved...

Be prepared, liberals are not industrious, they are generally not productive, nor are they positive in their influence. But, what they are is mindlessly relentless

Well said. The Left Never Sleeps.

If this election doesn’t send them packing back to their ivory tower gulags, there should be other means of getting them to stfu.

This group (the "Presidential Climate Action Project") is nothing more than an "ivory tower gulag[]," as you put it. It's an activist policy group, not a governmental organization. Not an election in the world can stop these groups from forming and saying whatever they're going to say (nor should they be stopped - the First Amendment protects even those who want to take away others' First Amendmment rights).

Yep.

The free media did a piss-poor job of vetting an unconstitutional presidential candidate, and now they will get unconstitutional restrictions.

Actions do have consequences...

No, I'm not. Newt co-sponsored the bill in 1987. Thank goodness Reagan vetoed it.

see for yourself
