Fairness Doctrine part one.

Part one is where the DemocRats save their friends:  the Mainstream Media.

With many U.S. newspapers struggling to survive, a Democratic senator on Tuesday introduced a bill to help them by allowing newspaper companies to restructure as nonprofits with a variety of tax breaks.

"This may not be the optimal choice for some major newspapers or corporate media chains but it should be an option for many newspapers that are struggling to stay afloat," said Senator Benjamin Cardin.

Remember that name, folks.  Senator Benjamin Cardin.  He's the point guy on the job of saving the Dem friendly propaganda mills.  Keep him in mind for next election.

Fairness Doctrine part two coming up soon, is where the DemocRats silence their enemies.

Buy gold and ammunition.  Come to think of it, never mind the gold.  Buy food.

I'd pay close attention to the final wording of the bill, perhaps putting in some restrictionary clauses to ensure that no "unfair" newspapers can make the switch.

Might be a moot point, mind you, since IIRC right-wing newspapers are doing much better than their left-wing counterparts.

Yeah, I just spotted that on Drudge myself. Obviously somebody has too much time and money available, eh?

I'm going to put up a post about it presently.

You know, the OPP can't even use that tech to find grow ops? Its true. Inadmissible in court, can't even use it to figure out which houses to watch. Or which houses to check electricity usage either.
