"Fairness Doctrine" Is A Non-Issue?

This is definitely NOT a non-issue. If it were a non-issue it would pass without objection as hundreds of other memorials and positions pass every day in the Senate and Congress.

Reagan calculated the possible response to this by the U.S. Supreme Court and decided to stop attempts to enforce the "Fairness Doctrine."

The FCC 1985 Fairness Report quite clearly determined that the fairness doctrine as embodied in its regulations no longer serves the statutory public interest Congress charges the Commission with advancing and further states that if it were up to the Commission, it would hold the doctrine unconstitutional.

If you think President Obama saying he would not endorce this means anything, consider this:
1. President Obama has and is proving he follows the party line as a Senator, a Candidate, and a President.
2. Chairwoman Pelosi is the one pulling the (purse) strings since her "First Hundred Hours," of 2007. Both President Bush and President Obama have had to follow her dictates.

He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
