I've mentioned Senator Debbie Stabenow's (D-MI) effort to revisit the "Fairness Doctrine", which is designed purely to shut down conservative talk radio. Here's an interesting little tidbit about her involvement in the talk radio sphere.
An excerpt from Camille Paglia's article on salon.com:
"One of the nuggets I've gleaned from several radio sources is that Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow, who has been in the aggressive forefront of the campaign to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine, is married to Tom Athans, who works extensively with left-wing radio organizations and was once the executive vice-president of Air America, the liberal radio syndicate that, despite massive publicity from major media, has failed miserably to win a national audience. Stabenow's outrageous conflict of interest has of course been largely ignored by the prestige press, which should have been demanding that she recuse herself from all political involvement with this issue."
Golly, I am shocked! Shocked, I say, that a Senator would put her own interests ahead of the the Constitutional Right to Free Speech! Unfortunately, that is the direction we are headed- total destruction of the document upon which our nation was founded. We the People are all that stand between our government and it's efforts to completely dismantle the US Constitution for political gain. Are we going to stand for that? Whilst the veterans and people who fought in WWII are rightfully called "The Greatest Generation", another truly great generation will be the one which has the will to stand up and oppose the enemy within which poses even greater danger to our nation.
