Talk Radio and the Blogosphere in Danger?

This is a long but worthwhile piece about the looming dangers to free speech associated with "campaign finance reform" and efforts to reinstate the "Fairness Doctrine."

The article includes a discussion of the case (currently being appealed) in Washington State where two radio hosts were sued for having provided "in kind donations" for expressing their points of view on a proposed tax hike. There are also scary quotes from John Kerry and Al Gore bemoaning the end of the Fairness Doctrine and the rise of Rush Limbaugh and talk radio.
