Michelle Malkin is reporting that a press conference will occur Wednesday regarding a ban on “fairness doctrine” laws:
Congressmen Pence and Walden join Senator DeMint in a press conference to highlight the introduction of the Broadcaster Freedom Act on the floor of the U.S. House. The Broadcaster Freedom Act would prevent the Federal Communications Commission from implementing the Fairness Doctrine without an act of Congress.
Participants: Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN)
Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR)
Date: Wednesday, January 7, 2009
Location: Senate Press Gallery, S-316, The Capitol
Project Fairness reports that Tuesday 1/6, Sen. James Inhofe introduced S.62, a bill to ban reinstatement of the “fairness doctrine.” He was a co-sponsor of the Broadcaster Freedom Act in 2007. One would assume that he will be a co-sponsor of the Broadcaster Freedom Act mentioned above.
Good to know that someone is fighting this attack on the First Amendment.
