From the WSJ:
Federal regulators will propose removing the “Fairness Doctrine,” a controversial, if little used, regulation on political speech from the books this week, the Federal Communications Commission said Monday.
The Fairness Doctrine, which has been around since 1949, required licensed broadcasters to give equal time to differing political views. The rule was introduced during an era in which there were far fewer media outlets and regulators wanted to ensure that listeners had access to both sides of political debate.
The FCC abandoned the policy in 1987 during the Reagan administration, saying it violated broadcasters’ free speech rights, but the regulation remained on the books.
Op-ed that was written by a Stanford Senior, he doesn't like the new Rape laws that are imposed on campuses nationwide. He uses the word "Liberal" like he's got tourettes. Mentions radical feminists and ruinous legal ethics. Then goes on to talk about how college is a time where free sex comes with alcohol (excuses). Then, he talks about how statistics are over-embellished and wrong, and basically rape doesn't happen as frequently as it does. & That women are NOT victims/minorities. Where was the compassion for women who previously and/or are suffering because of rape, because they are too afraid to tell and be ostracized in their communities and colleges? Nor, were there statistics to back up his facts and/or the stats of how many actual rapes occur on college campuses. So, Peter Berkowitz, you may use fancy sentence structure and get published in the Wall Street Journal, but we women KNOW a vile human when we see one. Rape happens and it's real, stop candy coating it. Every 21 hours a women is raped on a college campus and 90% of rapes occur while under the influence of alcohol. Instead of finding the wrong in the details and protocols of an after rape situation, maybe you should find the solution/problem to the moments leading up to the rape. & understand the word "NO."
Did you know this was happening in Chile?
Rebekah Brooks' Husband 'accidentally' throws out a computer, papers, & other pertinent stuff surrounding the News of the World scandal. Guards then find it in a garbage bin, then Brooks' husband actually goes to detectives to claim it. Needless to say, they said, "no."
It all started when the Obama presidential campaign released a video of Obama asking supporters to get involved in his reelection campaign and enter a contest to win dinner with him and the Vice President. Some Republicans raised questions about the ad being filmed in the White House.
What is the president supposed to do? Specifically leave the White House so he can film an ad.
"crime for the President of the United States to solicit political contributions in a place of official government business." Says Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Obama lives there, he works there, he eats there, he sleeps there.
This, this, this is what the CHAIRMAN of the Republican nat. co. has a problem with.
Priebus instead of wasting countless time and energy on stuff that doesn’t even matter, why doesn’t he focus his time and opinions on the national default of our country.
But ads filmed in the White House residence are perfectly legal, according to a 1979 opinion by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel.
Ok, ok, but now Priebus says, “no, it looks like the map room.”
Guess what, the MAP room is considered part of the residency.
