Clinton wants 'more balance' on airwaves

Even though no member of Congress has scheduled hearings on the Fairness Doctrine, it remains on a hot topic on both liberal and conservative shows.
Today, radio host Mario Solis Marich asked former President Bill Clinton if it was time for "some type of enforced media accountability."

"Well, you either ought to have the Fairness Doctrine or we ought to have more balance on the other side," Clinton said, "because essentially there's always been a lot of big money to support the right wing talk shows and let face it, you know, Rush Limbaugh is fairly entertaining even when he is saying things that I think are ridiculous...."

Clinton said that there needs to be either "more balance in the programs or have some opportunity for people to offer  countervailing opinions." Clinton added that he didn't support repealing the Fairness Doctrine, an act done under Reagan's FCC. In the past week, a couple Democratic Senators, Debbie Stabenow and Tom Harkin, have both spoken favorably about the Fairness Doctrine, or holding hearings on radio accountability.

Hillary: 'I'm Sick and Tired' of Patriotic Critics
NewsMax
April 29, 2003

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton opened up both barrels on supporters of President Bush Monday night, saying she's "sick and tired" of the way the patriotism of Bush's critics has been questioned.
"I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic," a shrill-sounding Clinton shouted during her address to Connecticut's Jefferson Jackson Bailey dinner.

"We should stand up and say, we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration" ; she shrieked.

Appears the Democrats, represented by the Clintons, have both sides of the fence covered.....again.

I straddled a fence once.

I'd like to say I lost my, um, Highwaymen that way, but no...

Just wanted to let you know I'm alive and kickin'.

"because essentially there's always been a lot of big money to support the right wing talk shows"


And an audience that wants to hear them is kind of necessary too;
nobody’s going to spend money long on a show that talks to crickets.
And Soros and Moveon etc are too broke?

If we're talking about economic "solutions" I agree totally with John.
