Chronicles of the Gang of 3 continued

So if the Big O gets in today, we're looking the "fairness" doctrine right between the eyes. Here's Chuckie Schumer talking about it and equating political speech with sexually explicit speech.

Why doesn't someone ask him - or Pelosi or Reid - who's going to decide what qualifies as left and what qualifies as right. See what's going to happen is that in order for the fairness doctrine to work there's going to have to be someone - or some committee that's going to have to rule on what kind of speech is what. FCC Commissioners, you say? Guess where they come from. They are appointed by the President and approved by the Senate. Which means, the Big O gets to say who they are and then Harry gets to rubber stamp them. Sounds like the road to free speech to me. I'm not even going to bother with the fact that only three can be affiliated with the same political party.
