I am opposed to any attempts by the FTC or the FCC to impose a "Fairness Doctrine" or "Fairness Tax". The right of free speech is guaranteed by the Constitution. I do not consider CNN and others to be fair in their reporting nor do I believe much of what they report, however, their right to say what they say regardless of bias is up to us, the Citizens of the USA, to determine whether we believe it or not. If there is no truth in the reporting, people will see through it anyway. Please stay out of this business of regulation that you have no right to do under the Constitution.
