Protests in Venezuela against Chavez, people are watching the protests in Iran on CNN, fairness doctrune!?

U.S. based CNN broadcasts all over the world and people in Venezuela are watching the protests in Iran and that's giving them the idea to protest against President Chavez.

That's why the U.S. needs the Fairness Doctrine passed into law, not just for extreme right-wing Fox News and talk radio, but for also every media including CNN

Update:

Anti Censorship? NO, I want world peace at any cost! yes, I lean toward the left and to make it fair we censor both liberal and consersitive news.

the news media cannot be allowed to control world polilical opinion

    So you want our politically one sided government to have to power to say what can and what cannot be shown? Thats just asking for trouble, see FAIR is a very very relative concept depending who you're asking.

    For example, if you ask a person on the left if the news media is biased to the left or right obviously that guy is gonna say its biased to the right and vice versa. So if you give the government which lets face it has always been one sided depending who won the election the power to regulate the media then who do you think they are gonna deem unfair? The opposition or the supporters?

    Things like the Fairness Doctrine are only good on paper, in effect though its gonna be a whole different story.

    ok let me get this straight the new lib cause celebre in Iran has caused collateral damage because Chavez who ironically rigged his last election is getting heat again lol The left flip flops so much i have no idea what they are thinking like they want to "Free Tibet" and "Free Darfur" yet freeing Iraq was the worse war crime ever? The fairness doctrine has nothing to do with these news stories, its the lefts split personality.

    Possible protests in Venezuela are all orchestrated by the upper classes who want the half Indian Chavez back in his cage.

    US business, as usual, has tried to completely dominate an entire country. They had their revolution. deal with it.

    And IDK what Fairness Doctrine is, but it sure doesn't prevent foKKKs from being a even more extreme anti-people rightwing thing.

    wow!! at least you admit to being a fascist. Getting rid of the right to free speech so we pursue a fairytale dream like world peace, sounds like another government scam.
