7. Yes, bring back the Fairness Doctrine, definitely

What the moron doesn't know, is that it would work better for us than him, and Repukes, generally..

10. Which is why they got rid of it in the first place.

If that fathead wants to restore the Fairness Doctrine, I'm all for it. I'm sure Fox News and Rush Limbaugh would be okay with that.

14. That may well be, since, after approximately 50 years,

It "died" during the Reagan Administration.
and was never revived, although I think Dems may have made some attempt.
There many people, even Dems, who think it would be near impossible to adapt it to a media environment that has far outpaced the original 3 station network's model, but I'm not so sure...I think it should get another SERIOUS look. It's a huge deal, IMO.

8. Normally that is true

But these are not normal times. In Trump World up is down and words do not mean what they used to mean.

12. But the world does revolve around the center of the universe.

Silly me, I always thought that it was the sun.

15. Good point, and no, he likely doesn't..

That said, I would love to see the Fairness Doctrine re-,tweaked for

the cable/digital age.
