Yep, they have to take one away, in order to take the other. It doesn't really matter which one to them.

I would like to say that it does matter. However, our public education system has done a great job of dumbing down the American populous to the point where they don't even realize that their rights are eroding right in front of them. There are some partisan shills on this very forum that are all in favor of idiotic laws that erode our rights all because it is proposed by a leftist.

And time must be given for a different opinion -if there is one- on an editorial. not free time or a chunk of time, just enough to express the contra view.
but yeah not a big gubment conspiracy but US as in the citizenry.
Federal bureaucrats define what's fair and what's not under the so-called fairness doctrine, not the People. All this doctrine does is allow Leftist political activists to dictate talk radio programming, something they had failed to do in the free market spectacularly.

A fairness doctrine would not do anything to prevent "Disinformation", it would just mean both sides get the same amout of time to spread disinformation and lie. Both of which have been stables in politics since two people had differing view points. As an example you would have to give a flat earther the same amout of time as someone like Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, which would grow and expand lies and disinformation greatly.

no. if you had a different opinion your views could be aired in contrast to an editorial. that's how it worked.

believe it or not, that is false.
before tv, when all we had for most folk was radio, the fcc & most broadcast owners themselves considered a weighty matter called 'propaganda' due to recent viewings of what it had done to Germany and Japan. They were very aware of what public communication could do to or for America.

Then explain Woodrow Wilson, the man that showed the Nazis how lies and disinformation worked, or how the myths of the effects of marijuana were propagated by the government and news media. That does not even scratch the surface when you add race relations, and the number of other things that lies and disinformation empowered just in the 20th century. This is the kicker, to regulate things like that you have to violate someones first amendment, remember protected speech isn't just the speech you like its the lies and disinformation too.
