MEDIA RESEARCH CENTER
FEBRUARY 18, 2009
For the third time in eight days, a prominent liberal has clanged the bell for the return of the Un-Fairness Doctrine.
The latest, none other than Bill Clinton, chimed his support saying, “You either have to have the Fairness Doctrine, or we ought to have more balance on the other side … for people to offer countervailing opinions.”
Since first sounding the alert many months ago about the liberal desire to re-instate the Fairness Doctrine, the Media Research Center has withstood a withering attack from the liberal media that took every opportunity to tell us we were “alarmists,” that the Fairness Doctrine would never return.
Well, guess what?
As we predicted, it’s here and the media are feverishly working to get liberal leaders in lockstep on the talking points!
Clinton, is just the latest in a fast-growing list of liberal mouth-pieces--including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. Henry Waxman and Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Tom Harkin who have just recently started chanting the Fairness mantra.
++ 100,000 Petitions Needed to Protect Free Speech in America
Thomas, the last conservative stronghold is talk radio, and the liberal media are in the process of creating a perfect storm—churning the waters, and setting the climate to eradicate it.
That’s why I’m turning to you right now.
Thomas, we must be mobilized for immediate action, and I’m counting on every member of our MRC Action team to help me rally the critically needed grassroots support to defend our Free Speech Rights!
Forward this message to 30-35 friends, and let them know how the liberal media are rapidly moving this agenda forward. Let them know what awaits if conservatives don’t take action to preserve our Freedom. Urge them to join with us right now by clicking here.
Already 90,557 citizens have signed our Free Speech Alliance petition opposing a censorship doctrine—with hundreds more signing every day. This is a great start, but we are running out of time. We simply must reach out to tens of thousands more conservatives in the days ahead—motivating each to take action with us by signing our national petition. I’m also thrilled to announce that nearly 60 organizations have joined our coalition to protect our Free Speech Rights from liberal elites who want to arrest conservative ideology, and co-op our First Amendment Rights!
Without question momentum is building, but we must be ready to boldly move forward at a moment’s notice with a petition presentation to key liberal targets and the FCC. That’s why I’m turning to key members of my team like you, Thomas, in hopes that you will help me take this effort to the next level in the days ahead.
Together we can stave off the liberal media and their insidious plan to muzzle the opposition, and protect our Free Speech Rights for generations to come.
As always, thank you for standing with the MRC.
P.S: Help me send a message to the liberal media that we won’t be silent or silenced. Please forward this message to 30-35 friends today. Urge them to join with you by clicking here.
