The Public Media shouldn't be owned by private corporations

Hysterical about the possibility that the Fairness Doctrine might be brought back, on Feb 26, 2009, with no other warning, a nauseatingly named and so-called "Broadcaster Freedom Act" was passed as an amendment to the DC voting rights bill in the Senate. It happened so fast that none of the congressional bill tracking sites have an update on this yet.

Probably never before has such a hideously misleading provision been snuck into a totally unrelated bill on such flimsy pretext.

The reason why the right wing is so petrified about the return of
real fairness to our media is that it is only by perpetuating
monopoly over the major news sources that they can effectively
exclude alternative viewpoints from public debate. It is their
last ditch attempt to stop the march of people's democracy.

Look up your local prosecuting attorney and sick them on the traitors who tried to destroy the U.S. Constitution.
