    Because they have exposed him and informed the American public, 0bama has clearly made any descending opinions and the airing of such a target to be eliminated as the man does not believe in freedom of speech

    Talk radio is rarely fair to either of our great political parties because it has proven to be terribly biased towards one party or the other over the years. These people have to sell advertising space, and if they aren't stirring up something they lose listeners. So they intentionally ask provocative questions that stir the electorate up.

    President Obama isn't saying anything new hear. The Republicans have as much use for these people as the Dems have. The simple fact is that politicians don't like talk radio because it airs their dirty linen.

    Talk radio is no more fair or unfair than the rest of the media, which by the way is overwhelmingly liberal. People can turn it off if they don't want to listen. Despite some attempts to shut it up we still have freedom of expression in this country.

    The Obama gadget used propaganda of their shameless merchandising of an merely approximately unknown senator into the workplace of POTUS...even over the jaw flapping of Fox and all the debate radio classes. Why the concerns now? the only element i would be sure is that that's form of like the recent vehicle honeymoon...after the magnificent new vehicle is abode, and a few scratches seem in the intervening weeks...the vehicle loses a number of its "aah" element; yet while that's a stable vehicle, you are able to force it. He would desire to hire a czar to be sure he performs like a POTUS. merchandising would desire to provide thank you to overall performance.

    "Fair" is subjective to WHO decides what is and what isn't. The world knows the childish temper tantrum Obama threw at Fox News, for their expose' of the Marxists, racists, anti-radicals Obama placed in as Czars. Then, Air America, the most leftist and BORING dissemination of radical propaganda folded after the last 10 viewers stopped watching.

    The FCC Czar, another Obama appointee, has a track record of recorded and printed comments, that CLEARLY show, this man want's to "control" the media, period. ( He has openly PRAISED Hugo Chavez and his "brilliant" revolution in Venezuela, one the VERY same day Chavez "shut down" the LAST free radio station in the country ).

    Even Obama's Chief of Staff, wanted to pass a law to make it a felony to criticize a "public official".

    This is the "insanity" Obama is trying to implement.

    They hate the truth about themselves. It cost them votes each day the truth is spoken. They pretty much have the papers sewed up, and the major new stations (not cable) lean hard left. They don't like their playground damaged by the truth. And that's the fact. God Bless America, and a Merry Christmas to all, from Mr. Know

    Because it proves that the free market is successful and that the vast majority of people support the ideology of the Conservative Right. Air America's epic failure is proof that Liberal Leftist ideology is so far out of the mainstream that it is unsustainable on it's own merits and must be subsidized so that it continues to exist.

    They're convinced that "Conservative" talk radio is not fair. I hear no objections to the Liberal talk radio.

    They don't necessarily feel that it isn't "fair". They just realize that the Conservatives dominate talk radio, and are trying to nullify that advantage through the Fairness Doctrine. In my opinion, this bill violates the First Amendment right to a free press, but that's just me.
