For what it's worth, a statement from Sen. DeMint's office, as relayed by Michelle Malkin's blog, says that
the Durbin amendment is pretty much "an attempt to dismantle successful syndicated radio programs. The Durbin amendment would hurt small, local radio stations who depend on popular syndicated programming for listeners and revenue."


The Demint statement she passes along (he sent it via Twitter) offers his opinion that it would be a backdoor way of bringing back the Fairness
Doctrine. While the Senate can boast to opponents of the FD that it fell 87-11, note that the Durbin amendment on
localism was a bit closer: 57-41.
