Fairness Doctrine aka Hush Doctorine

Before you read the article, remember if this passes, not only would this apply to talk radio but it would also apply to Christian radio stations.

Forcing stations to play something that their target audience doesn't want to hear or is unpopular has several problems.
1) In radio, income comes from commercials and only popular shows generate any substantial income. This bill would be anti capitalism
2) People who listen to Christian radio stations don't want to hear opposing religions or beliefs. You listen to be edified and not have to worry about what comes on the air. Likewise, a republican talk radio station doesn't want to hear democratic agenda. That's what NPR is for.
