Democrats Trying Desperately To Stifle Political Speech

Great piece here on the Democrats' ridiculous saber-rattling about the "Fairness Doctrine," which (in the current multimedia environment) can simply be referred to as the "Hush Rush" Bill.

What are the Democrat so afraid of? Why do the feel the need to regulate political speech and opinions, despite the text and letter of the First Amendment? Why aren't they interested in regulating the opinions and biases of journalists, who have shown overwhelmingly that they are not only Democrats, but that they actively support Democrats financially while lying to the public about their biases? Why do they want to dictate to you what you should be able to listen to? What laws are preventing liberals from entering talk radio (besides the law of supply and demand)? Why does John Kerry advocate government meddling in media content? Why, if talk radio is just fringe and inconsequential, are the Democrats trying to censor it?

Can any Democrat actually answer these questions without pretending they're not trying to chill free political speech?

More from Michelle, who notes that Mike Pence is already moving in the House to counter this.
