Sause for the Goose?

It is so often the case that media liberals have one set of rules for themselves
-- and another for everyone else.

In it’s endorsement of Barrack Obama the Chronicle wrote his election will reinstate the Constitution which under President George Bush evidently had been suspended. The Chronicle weakly declined any attempt to substantiate that preposterous assertion. Now ironically that the Chronicle’s man has indeed taken office, the First Amendment itself is authentically under full frontal attack. --And no one at the Chronicle cares.

Unlike the Chronicle, I will be specific. Certain liberal lawmakers like U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) want to shut down talk-radio by reconstituting the misnamed “Fairness Doctrine”. Interestingly enough this doctrine does not apply to liberal print media and won’t apply to the liberal broadcast news outlets like CBS. It will only effectively apply to Fox News and AM Radio stations. If passed there won’t be anymore conservative outlets of news and opinion except for the internet.
According to NewsBusters, U.S. Representative Henry Waxman is already at work on clamping down on conservative internet sites.

The Chronicle and the rest of the MSM predictably will argue that they provide alternative points of view like Dowd Muska’s opinions from time to time. That’s not the whole truth. The editors can always substitute Muska’s op-ed if he makes his argument a little to well. Also I am keenly aware of one instance where the Chronicle refused to run a story about an overzealous Obama supporter that twice vandalized my car. The Chronicle did however print a front page story on some Obama signs that were stolen in Ashford and delicately let it be assumed that Republicans were responsible.

So much for the concept of equal time. The Chronicle's editor protected his candidate by not only minimizing my story to a mere letter to the editor but also by taking out criticism of himself. The Chronicle literally took the words out of my mouth
and made certain no one heard them.

Liberals always reserve the right to silence opinions it deems to dangerous to be heard even when the outcome seems assured for their side. Let’s keep that in mind when they speak next of “fairness”.

Obama has actually come out against the (Un)Fairness Doctrine, but I don't trust him. I think this may just be strategy. Liberals in Congress will continue to push for this thing while Obama distances himself from it, thereby making himself look reasonable while not really doing anything to stop the FD train. Don't have any proof of that but I wouldn't put it past the Big O.

You don't trust him?

Well why the Hell not? Just because he has not kept his word about anything from Iraq to trade?

They will call it something else but they will ram rod it through. Or try to.

They don't even need an act of congress. It was a mere regulation.

Thank goodness we have Alito. He will cast the deciding vote in our favor.
