This is crazy, Vote NO. This "Fairness Doctrine" is actually a Censorship Doctrine, its requesting controlled speech! Journalist are upset because the internet and talk radio are actually reporting the news, rather than covering it up or painting a rosey picture to what's going on. Organizations like "Free Press" aren't calling for free speech, they're calling for restricted speech because people are WAKING UP to what's going on in the administration and government, becuase they're finding out the truth online and on talk radio. If the situation was reversed and they were being told to restrict their comments they would be in outrage and NBC, CBS, ABC would be covering it. VOTE NO in regards to the horrible piece of legislation even being discussed right now, let alone being asked to be voted on. Don't vote away the freedoms and rights awarded to us by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Thank you, Whitney Lewis
