The Fraidy Cat Doctrine or the You Don't Agree With Me Whinery

Alrighty then!  I have read El Rushbo's Op-Ed in the WSJ which was published on 2.20.09, a day or so after the Obama Goon came out and said that Obama wasn't for the Fairness Doctrine.  Of course he isn't.  It has an evil connotation to it so it will be called something else.  The Fairness Doctrine, Localism and Radio Accountability didn't go over so well so the name has to, NAY!, must change to something more appealing and more attractive to the idiots that cannot think for themselves.

El Rushbo seems to think that the reason Obama goons came out ahead of the OP-Ed  was to run interference seeing that El Rushbo is merely an insignificant entertainer and no one can get anything done listening to Rush Limbaugh.  Here's what El Rushbo had to say about all of this:

[...] On Wednesday morning, the guy I deal with, with the Journal who had asked me, sends me a note and says, "Are we still on? We really want to run this." I said, "I sent it to you three times." So I sent it from a different e-mail address. He got it, and said, "We're going to run it Friday," and I said, "Look, I don't want to tell you how to do your business, page and so forth, but you ought to run it Thursday so it's going to have some legs."  "Well, we're not going to have time to edit it. It's going to run Friday.  We got a lot of stuff planned for Thursday."  I said, "Okay."  So on Wednesday Obama sends a spokesman out to say he doesn't believe in the Fairness Doctrine, after of all this is in the pipeline.  Well, we immediately began suspecting here, "Wait a second, now! This comes out of the blue.  How does this come out of the blue?"

It could have been totally coincidence.  We cannot prove it.  I have not investigated whether there was a leak.  It's just very coincidental, and when it happened, I sent my guy at the Journal a note. I said, "Don't fall for this. They're not going to call this the Fairness Doctrine.  Obama didn't deny he wants to censor radio.  He said he doesn't believe in the Fairness Doctrine."  So I altered one paragraph, fired it back, and it ran today.  It actually posted at 11:15 last night.  "Dear Mr. President." It's an open letter to President Obama. "I have a straightforward question, which I hope you will answer in a straightforward way: Is it your intention to censor talk radio through a variety of contrivances, such as 'local content,' 'diversity of ownership,' and 'public interest' rules -- all of which are designed to appeal to populist sentiments but, as you know, are the death knell of talk radio and the AM band? [...]

Here's the rub and the part that will certainly wrinkle the Wranglers.  Rush has as the sub-title to the piece at WSJ thusly: "As a former law professor, surely you understand the Bill of Rights."  That had to sting the libtards just a bit, don't you think?

As for Obama being against the "Fairness Doctrine", what would he do if the bill came before him?  WOuld he veto it?  WOuld there be more secret bakroom deals being made with other key players closed out of the loop?  After all, the "I won" card just might be played on this one as well.  This from Ed:

I guess the question of Obama administration policy on the Fairness Doctrine depends on which aide one asks.  After getting vacillation from press secretary Robert Gibbs and top adviser David Axelrod, a more junior member of the Obama team insisted that Obama still opposes a return of the Fairness Doctrine: [...]

[...] I’d like to hear a little more about Obama’s opposition to reimposition of FD on talk radio.  Would he block such a move by Congress with a veto?  Or would he replace an FCC commissioner who attempted to reimpose it?

That’s not an academic question.  We have had several members of Congress talk approvingly of reimposing equal-time requirements on talk radio, including Senators Tom Harkin, Debbie Stabenow, and Representatives Maurice Hinchey and Dennis Kucinich, among others.  Just in the last two weeks, we have seen a veritable avalanche of support from Capitol Hill for the Fairness Doctrine or its equivalent. [...]

Some idiot was on with Megyn Kelly of Fox News the other day and he called it something else.  He called it the "Fair and Balanced Doctrine".  Like network news programs?  NPR?  Hollyweird?  Fair and balanced like them?  Wake up people.

We'll see if Obama has the stones to stand up against his moonbats because at one time, he was all for the Fairness Doctrine.  He pretty much alluded to that with the "I won" crap.

In case you are interested, I have a small collection of posts from all over located right here on the Fairness Doctrine as well as at my web site located here.
