Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), Letter from "Silence Dogood," printed in The New England Courant, July 9, 1722

COMMENTARY: Liberals don't like talk radio (almost universally on AM radio) because overall it is predominately conservative.  They have tried to counter that with their own network (Air America) and failed miserably.  Whereas conservative talk radio survives by selling advertising, the Air America network had so few listeners they had to pay stations to accept their programming.  Never mind that about 80% of Americans get their news and opinions from the major network news programs which are all decidedly liberal.  Never mind that they already have a tax supported network that is also decidedly liberal (PBS).  To liberals the fact that they already have the ear of the majority of Americans isn't enough.  They want to silence all opposing viewpoints.  To that end they have proposed bringing back the "Fairness Doctrine," a proposal that would require stations that broadcast any conservative program to balance it with an equal time liberal program at no cost to the liberals.  That, of course, is economic insanity and would mean the end of conservatives on talk radio, which is exactly what the liberal want..... no opposing viewpoints to anything they want to do.  Somehow that seems to trample on the Free Speech provision of our Constitution.  Of course, liberals have a history of ignoring the Constitution when it suits their aims.

In their drive to silence conservative talk radio they have started calling it "hate radio."  No, I am not kidding.  Have a look at how far they are going to push that idea:  http://www.stophateradio.org/

I hope you will take the time to let you Senators and Representatives hear from you on this matter.  It is important.
