Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich) told liberal radio host Bill Press in an interview that she’s all for the Fairness Doctrine, which is Newspeak for eviscerating one of the only two places conservatives can effectively exercise their right to free speech:
I absolutely think it’s time to be bringing accountability to the airwaves. I mean, our new president has talked rightly about accountability and transparency. You know, that we all have to step up and be responsible. And, I think in this case, there needs to be some accountability and standards put in place.
To which Drew at Ace of Spades responds:
How’s this for transparency you idiot…people like to listen to conservative talk radio and not so much for liberals. There, transparent enough?
Today the radio, tomorrow the internet. Watch your backs, my friends.
Oh, and if the name Debbie Stabenow sounds vaguely familiar to you, as it did to me, it’s because she’s the one whose husband David Athans got busted last year for hiring a 20-year-old hooker. I’ll bet the right-wing talk radio hosts were all over him like a cheap suit, and Debbie didn’t like it not one little bit.
Hell hath no fury like an aging woman scorned by her younger husband and made a public laughingstock by conservative talk show hosts.
