Talk radio icon Michael Savage is joining forces with a Michigan-based civil rights advocacy organization to protect free speech by fighting the return of the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.”
“A regulation of speech motivated by nothing more than a desire to silence political opposition on controversial issues of public interest is the purest example of a law abridging the freedom of speech,” said Richard Thompson, president and chief counsel of the Thomas More Law Center.
“Such action is the hallmark of totalitarian governments, not a free society,” he said.
The Fairness Doctrine was abandoned in 1987, but leading Democrats increasingly have called for its return.
Now before everyone “jumps” on his case about “jumping the gun” on this issue, ya have to step back and ask yourself,”do you trust the elected cockroaches?”
