Today the Senate voted to ban the FCC from reinstating the Fairness Doctrine.
If reinstated, the Fairness Doctrine would require radio and TV stations to broadcast equal amounts of time to opposing views of any argument.
Many conservatives feared the Obama administration, along with the Democratic-controled House, would reinstate it.
The amendment, sponsored by Republican Sen. Jim DeMint, passed 87-11 and now heads to the House.
But there is also pending legislation backed by Democrat Dick Durbin that encourages diversity in media ownership.
Some conservatives fear that could be a back door to enforce the Fairness Doctrine.
