At Protein Wisdom, Dan Collins gets at the essence of the problem of the “Fairness Doctrine,” “The problem with defining diversity of perspective is, of course, that someone must do the defining.”
That’s one reason why, in determining who should be allowed to speak out on issue of national concern, I prefer freedom to fairness. Â It boils don to who gets to determine what’s fair and what’s not.
Just look at where the Obama Administration is turning to define fairness:
The new news is that the administration may be farming out the task of what constitutes acceptable diversity to . . . MoveOn.org, which has been compiling a large database of unacceptable outlets.
Read the whole thing as Dan provides more examples of “fairness” on media outlets whose bias escapes the notice of MoveOn. Seems the only bias these people find intolerable is that from the right.
