Romney, Bachmann, Gingrich, Ron Paul

Can any of these candidates actually win?

if the liberal media thinks they can win look for a lot of negative press on them…

If the liberal media thinks they will loose look for positive press on that candidate.

If you trust the media then the answer is no one can win except for Obama?

But are you really that dumb?  The media thinks that you are, sitting in your home watching what the bobble heads have to say…

Really, that is how the media wants to play their head games, with their talking heads?

Separate the answer is no they cannot, however these are not the only candidates they just happen to be the ones that the biased liberal media “thinks” cannot win. One thing that many Americans seem to not understand about the modern political process is that it is no longer a fair contest. Back in the days of the past, there was a fairness about the contest, however that is no longer happening, and it is not happening for one reason, the media is no longer a spectator.

They are participating in the process.

When the press began to involve itself in the political process the contest ceased to exist. This is a serious problem in America, where in nations all over the world attempts are made to produce nations in our own image yet, for some the idea that what is often said and what is the truth may not be the same thing. Who can win, with so many names in the hat and so many different opinions, plus the media playing around with the facts as they choose, and not neurally then you have to wonder if a fair election is going to occur outside a law passed in congress to prevent media bias from clouding the results of an election.

FTC fairness doctrine for the internet?

Over the past three years, we have seen the constitution trampled on by every liberal in DC yet the media barely covers these miscreants, in their ivory towers. When will the media begin to report on these issues that effect all of the world…

Are we looking at yet another attempt to censor the free speech of the internet?

Is this yet another fairness doctrine attempt, this time in the name of protecting consumers online?

When we have blatantly deceptive commercial advertising on network TV Cable and Radio, that are deceptive yet are not enforced, what should the consuming public think of this?

What will happen in the future?

So what is the Fairness doctrine?

source wikipedia.

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced. The 1949 Commission Report served as the foundation for the Fairness Doctrine since it had previously established two more forms of regulation onto broadcasters. These two duties were to provide adequate coverage to public issues and that coverage must be fair in reflecting opposing views.[1] The Fairness Doctrine should not be confused with the Equal Time rule. The Fairness Doctrine deals with discussion of controversial issues, while the Equal Time rule deals only with political candidates. The Fairness Doctrine imposed two rules for broadcasters: First it required broadcasters to provide controversial news and public affairs, and it required broadcasters to provide reasonable opportunities for the presentation of contrasting view points. The second rule required contingent access obligations on broadcasters to provide reply time to issue oriented citizens and editorialized on public issues. Broadcasters could trigger fairness Doctrine complaints without editorializing. Spectrum scarcity was the doctrines reason for being made. Because more people wanted to broadcast than available frequencies could accommodate, broadcasters’ public trustee obligations required regulatory clarification, the FCC reasoned. The commission required neither of the Fairness Doctrine’s obligations before 1949. Until then broadcasters had to satisfy only general “public interest” standards of the Communications Act.[2]

 

When will we learn as a people as a race of people that there are things in this world that are not fair.

That life is not fair, that sometimes, the lives of soldiers are required to insure the freedom of people.

Sometimes we see the things in this world and we want to do something to make it fair, but the fact is there is no fairness to life, there is not a guarantee, that people will be treated the same way the same time every time.

When a man tried to equalize the world what happens is that eventually the scale balance’s itself.

The fairness doctrine was a failure, back in 1949 and it was a failure in the 60s when they tried it, and it was a failure in the 1970s when they once again tried, it.

The fact is that the fairness doctrine will not work and it will not work for this case either.

The only way to be fair is to require it of everyone, if you require disclosure of one group you must require it of all groups.

 

It is time for politicians to tend to their own business and let us deal with ours.
