From Concerned Women for America:
May 31, 2009
Please join millions of Americans across the country on June 1-4 and call Representative Nancy Pelosi and Senator Harry Reid and urge them to bring up the Broadcaster Freedom Act for a vote. If the Broadcaster Freedom Act is not passed, the “Fairness Doctrine” could be reinstated and our opinions muzzled.
Recently, some in Congress have gone on record to try to revive the so-called “Fairness Doctrine,” a decades-old policy that requires broadcasters to offer airtime to opposing viewpoints. These liberals are livid that conservatives dominate talk-radio and merely want to silence us where our voices are actually being heard. Even though liberals control every other media outlet, they want to completely squelch our voice under the guise of “diversity.”
In response to this proposed gagging of our First Amendment rights, Representative Mike Pence and Senator Jim DeMint introduced the Broadcaster Freedom Act, which bars the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from spending money to revive the “Fairness Doctrine” or any similar policies.
Please join Americans nationwide between June 1-4 and call Representative Pelosi at (202) 225-4965 and Senator Reid at (202) 224-3542. Ask them to bring the Broadcaster Freedom Act up for a vote.
Thank you for standing for our freedoms.
