No more taxes, period. Leave the so-called "fairness doctrine" dead. We are supposed to be guaranteed freedom of speech in this country, not censorship of ideas by this administration or any other administration. Radio and television stations live by the rates that they charge for programming so the airwaves are open to those who can provide the revenue to fund the programs, be they conservate or liberal. The FTC and the FCC needs to leave this issue alone, not take up the President's mantra just because he doesn't like to be critisized.
