Free Speech and Popularity
Senator Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico revealed his support for the "Fairness Doctrine" in a recent interview that I heard replayed on the Laura Ingraham show this morning. The most popular radio programs in America are Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Glenn Beck, and Michael Savage. All of these popular shows are right of center. Leftist talk show hosts have extremely low popularity ratings. The Dems want to force stations that bring us the popular shows to give equal time to the unpopular left-of-center points of view. Bingaman himself is a member of the Congress that has the lowest popularity ratings in history!
