One of my California senators, Dianne Feinstein, is joining the chorus threatening to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine.
Feinstein's reason? She doesn't like the way talk radio has approached the immigration bill; she claims talk radio doesn't present information about the bill fairly. So her response is to clamp down on free speech.
Ironically, Feinstein's claim that talk radio takes "one or two things" out of the bill to discuss "out of context," "without a lot of information," couldn't be further from the truth.
Unlike many senators, talk radio hosts including Hugh Hewitt and Sean Hannity have actually read and studied the entire bill, which runs hundreds of pages.
The reality is that it is only on talk radio and blogs where the American people are receiving a complete picture of what's actually hidden in the immigration bill.
Senators like Feinstein and Trent Lott don't want the American people to a) hear the truth and b) voice our opinions, and would rather force us to quietly obey the 100 Kings and Queens of the Senate.
