Empire Page Readers Oppose Restoring Fairness Doctrine

By an 11 to 4 margin, readers of the Empire Page oppose restoring the so-called Fairness Doctrine that would require broadcasters to give equal time to opposing viewpoints.   150 readers voted in the poll which was conducted between Nov. 30 and Dec. 7.

George F. Will, the syndicated columnist explicated the hyprocrisy of those who advocate for restoring the doctrine in his Dec. 7 column in the Washington Post.  Rather than promoting fairness the doctrine is intended to quash minority expression.

I recommend that people read Will’s article and let their representatives and senators know they oppose its re-introduction.
