Oh, man. You have got to be kidding. This is straight out of Orwell.
Maybe they should be licensed by the Ministry of Truth. If I don't have
a license, then I just go home and commune with big brother on my
wall sized TV, instead of involving myself in the democratic process.
Truth and accuracy will sort itself out. It already is, when you look
at FOX News effectively tearing up the NBC BS outlet channels in
the ratings. You can fool some of the people some of the time...
Don't let the FCC improve your media. When was the last time
the Federal goverment ever improved something it got its hands

So, 'reasonable one', basically every comment you disagree with is guilty
of hate speech. I didn't notice racism among these, but that not withstanding,
don't forget the the protecting of free speech wouldn't be necessary if some
of it wasn't repugnant to start with. Why don't you just enjoy the shock talkers,
debate them when you can, and use the free market system to make your
support or lack of it known. If these types didn't have a majority following,
they wouldn't be heard in the first place. It is easier to whine and tell the
nanny state to control free speech than to build your own media outlet.
Air America is doing just fine these days... thanks to its wild popularity ;-)
