Should the FCC limit talk radio's free speech even further?

  • the fcc limit

    We are sinners. I think that humanity is inherently evil, rather than good, because our sinful nature is stronger than our nature for good. When man ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, man became fallen. From then on, humanity is not capable of doing good. Rather, they seek to hurt and cheat each other.

  • FCC limit talk radio

    I personally agree,The main agenda for the doctrine was to ensure that viewers were exposed to a diversity of viewpoints. In 1969 the United States Supreme Court upheld the FCC's general right to enforce the Fairness Doctrine where channels were limited. But the courts did not rule that the FCC was obliged to do so. The courts reasoned that the scarcity of the broadcast spectrum, which limited the opportunity for access to the airwaves, created a need for the Doctrine. However, the proliferation of cable television, multiple channels within cable, public-access channels, and the Internet have eroded this argument, since there are plenty of places for ordinary individuals to make public comments on controversial issues at low or no cost at all.

  • Talk radio should not be limited.

    There is no way to limit access to talk radio. Things said on talk radio cannot be controlled during the broadcast. Some things get said, and either these things are not true, but are presented as the truth, or they reach an audience that is inappropriate. This is the risk we take in the name of free speech. The FCC still has enforcement tools to punish those that would violate the trust they have asked for to use radio waves. That is enough.

  • Not at all

    The radio is getting to be a thing of the past, and they need to be able to do what it takes to get a lot of people to listen in to their shows again, so they do not need to be limited in what all they can say on there.

  • FCC limit radio talk further

    I disagree with the FCC limiting radio talk , I feel like it shoulnt be limited at all because we live in a country with freedom of speech if people dont like it dont listen to the raidio buy a cd dont take your issues out on other people in the us
