    You people should really read this one. It doesn’t say anything about limiting speech, or what you can or can’t say. It says if there is a controversial issue, such as an election or a war, the broadcasters can not freely “push” their own agenda over public airwaves. If they spend time on one view, they need to use the same amount of time for the opposing view.

    I believe in this one wholeheartedly, see William Randolph Hearst, American newspaper magnate and leading newspaper publisher in the late 1800s, the Spanish–American War and Yellow Journalism. His quote was “You furnish the pictures, I’ll furnish the war.” Look it up. People who don’t want to hear opposing views, well you should look up Fascism.
