>>There's certainly some chatter about a return of the Fairness 
Doctrine on the lefty blogs I visit, but it's certainly not a 
high-profile cause of most of the liberals I know, at least not to 
the extent that the righty talk hosts seem to be imagining it to be.

On the conservative Radio Equalizer blog, Brian Maloney says that Henry Rivera,
"a longtime radical leftist, lawyer and former FCC commissioner, is expected to lead the push to dismantle commercial talk radio that is favored by a number of Democratic Party senators". Maloney says that Rivera's exit from the FCC helped in repealing
the Doctrine, thus leading to talk radio as we know it today, and he says that in June of 2009, Pres. Obama could
appoint a pro-Fairness Doctrine commissioner in place of a Republican currently in there.

Agreed with your opinion on Fairness Doctrine.
