With two wars and a crumbling economy and a budget that is a disaster, for the life of me I can not figure out why the GOP is obsessed with the revival of the fairness doctrine. It truly is bizarre the obsession with this, and in unrelated posts here, every now and then one of the wingnut trolls will pop in and spout off something about it. What is even weirder about it is that ONLY Republicans are talking about it.
I can’t figure it out. Look, guys- you so did such a smashing job fucking EVERYTHING up that Congress and the Obama administration are too occupied with actual emergencies to worry about the stupid damned fairness doctrine.

More paranoia. Someone just forwarded an email to one of my email lists claiming that NBC pulled the SNL “bailout skit” from the entire internet and asked “Now how much power would you have to have to pull something from the entire internet?”
You can find the “bailout” sketch, in its entirety, hidden away at the… NBC website. The name of the skit displays the depths of NBC’s perfidy, as it is called ‘C-Span Bailout.’ Tricky, hunh? They even reshowed the entire episode of SNL that contained this skit two weeks ago.
