Incoming FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski: No Censorship, No “Fairness” Doctrine – Big Hollywood


There was good news coming out of the Senate Commerce Committee Tuesday.  Julius Genachowski, President Obama’s choice to head the Federal Communications Committee made a strong statement that he does not favor censorship of the broadcast airwaves.  It is the most definitive and concise statement heard from the Chairman-to-be and from the Obama administration.  We welcome it.  Let’s hope the far-left backs off its call for a return of Fairness Doctrine-like regulations aimed at conservative talk radio.  I doubt they will, but at least Genachowski is on record as opposed to the Fairness Doctrine and controversial localism mandates that would censor free speech determined by the marketplace.
