Bill Clinton Joins The Censorship (Fairness) Doctrine Support Group; Wants "More Balance" on Radio

Chuck Schumer. Debbie Stabenow. Tom Harkin. Anna Eshoo. Dick Durbin. Diane Feinstein.

Bill Clinton has now added his two cents.

From Michael Calderone at Politico:

Today, radio host Mario Solis Marich asked former President Bill Clinton if it was time for "some type of enforced media accountability."

"Well, you either ought to have the Fairness Doctrine or we ought to have more balance on the other side," Clinton said, "because essentially there's always been a lot of big money to support the right wing talk shows and let face it, you know, Rush Limbaugh is fairly entertaining even when he is saying things that I think are ridiculous...."

Clinton said that there needs to be either "more balance in the programs or have some opportunity for people to offer countervailing opinions." Clinton added that he didn't support repealing the Fairness Doctrine, an act done under Reagan's FCC.

What is President Clinton saying? Liberal radio sucks and no one listens so there's no money to support them; so let's just censor the right wing!

(Hat Tip: Doug Ross)


Sen. Tom Harkin: ‘there you go, we gotta get the Fairness Doctrine back in law again.’
