FOCUS | Robert Parry: Dixie Chicks, Valerie Plame & Bush

FOCUS | Robert Parry: Dixie Chicks, Valerie Plame & Bush: “Robert Parry: ‘Certainly, no one who truly cares about democracy favors punishing critics and demonizing dissenters. But just such hostility has been the calling card of George W. Bush and his backers over the past five years as they have subjected public critics to vilification, ridicule and retaliation.'”

That makes me think of this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal-time_rule: “The rule was created because FCC thought the stations could easily manipulate the outcome of the elections.”

The notion of equal time needs to be carved into law in all spheres of life. Obviously, people are unwilling and disallowed to hear all points of view, therefore they must be forced to hear all points of view. Equal time in print advertising, equal time in network news, equal time in education.
