They Had To Protect Free Speech To Crush It

In moves epitomizing what the Left means by "fairness," the Senate both banned and passed the Fairness Doctrine yesterday.

You'll be happy to know it banned the Fairness Doctrine, with 87 senators voting against that vile crushing of free expression, because they serve the voters who elected them.

However, on a strict party line vote, it voted for a Senator Durbin amendment (to the illegal and unconstitutional DC House Voting Rights Act, by the way-- Dems vote themselves an extra vote and crush your right to point out there is no case to be made for such a move) to accomplish the same goals through new FCC regulations, because voters don't know what's good for them.

If none of the rest of the Constitution means anything, I don't know why the First Amendment would stand.
