QOTD

The left's commitment to freedom isn't even skin deep. California Attorney General (and former Governor) Jerry Brown appeared on conservative talk host Michael Savage's radio show on Feb. 13, and was asked about re-instituting the Fairness Doctrine:
During the interview, Savage noted that Brown sounded as if he wanted state control over the media.

"Well, a little state control wouldn't hurt anybody," Brown replied.

From what I know of Jerry Brown, he may have meant that as a joke. But sadly, many Democrats in Congress are dead serious about it.

We have to defend freedom of speech as strongly as possible. It should apply to conservative talk radio as well as to leftist outfits like MSNBC. Freedom of speech is meaningless unless it applies to the most offensive speech you can think of (take your pick).

TC:

Agreed. But though the left dominates all other mass media, it makes them crazy that they don't have talk radio too. I worry that the Dems have the votes to do almost anything.
