I believe it to be the duty of this commission to continue to allow the first constitutional amendment right of free speech to the citizens of this country. It is unacceptable for organizations to be required to present opposing views on controversial issues. With the airways available for EVERYONE, citizens can find content they can agree with and listen to it. They are also free NOT TO LISTEN to programs the do not agree with. If you burden programs with presenting opposing views, you will dramatically stifle free speech (which I am sure it the goal of the liberal agenda as ONLY CONSERVATIVE AND CHRISTIAN SPEECH is targeted by this change). This policy was abysmal before and is a violation of the first amendment. Please do not repeat this error.
