Obama Throws Fairness Doctrine Under the Bus
Barack Obama says he does not support the return of the Fairness Doctrine.
There may be some Democrats talking about reimposing the Fairness Doctrine, but one very important one does not: presumptive presidential nominee Barack Obama.
The Illinois senator’s top aide said the issue continues to be used as a distraction from more pressing media business.
“Sen. Obama does not support reimposing the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters,” press secretary Michael Ortiz said in an e-mail to B&C late Wednesday.
Whew! Good thing Barack Obama has the reputation of always standing by his decisions and keeping his word.
