Fairness Doctrine: Should We Be Concerned?

Ad Feedback

Should the government be allowed to determine what political views are broadcasted on TV and radio?

This could happen if the Fairness Doctrine is re-instated. The 1949 policy was started by the Federal Communications Commission and required that stations give equal time to opposing views.

In 1987, the FCC abolished the doctrine and more broadcasts like conservative talk radio exploded on the scene.

CBN News spoke with Seton Motley of the Media Research Center for more insight on what a re-instatement of the Fairness Doctrine could mean.
