From Town Criers to Bloggers: How Will Journalism Survive the Internet Age?
I seriously oppose the idea of limiting free speach. This is protected by the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Broadcast radio is a commercial endevor, not a political one. If one sides veiwpoints aren't heard on radio, the opposite is true with television. There is a distinct one sided viewpoint there. You can't "fix" one without fixing the other. And the fix they get is from advertising. They lose their audience, they lose advertisers, they lose their station. Pretty simple in reality. Keep government's hands out of this situation. It is a free market solution, not a political one. So leave things alone before you screw things up for everyone. Or are you scared of aninformed electorate? If so, maybe there is a message there.
