The fairness doctrine

This sunday, while talking to Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday”, Senator Diane Feinstein opened up a can of worms when asked about ‘the fairness doctrine’. She said,

“Well, I’m looking at it, as a matter of fact, Chris, because I think there ought to be an opportunity to present the other side. And unfortunately, talk radio is overwhelmingly one way.”

Also:

“I remember when there was a fairness doctrine, and I think there was much more serious correct reporting to people.”

For those of you unfamiliar with the fairness doctrine, here’s a few links to take a look at that may help familiarize you with the subject.
