In episode 16 of The Southern Geek, I talk about political divisiveness in America. And why it might be time to bring back the Fairness Doctrine, so America can come together again! Seriously, people have become more divided in America on everyday issues. And for some people, it’s their way or the highway, and some people have lost friends because of political discourse. And here in Alabama, did you know that a country radio station plays the theme song to Superman before Rush Limbaugh comes on? Yep, politics have gotten out of control.
But what if people in America came back together again. And actually listened to what other people have to say instead of just ignoring them? If the Fairness Doctrine came back, all TV and radio stations would have to present both sides of the story, left and right. That means no more FOX News doing only Right stories and MSNBC doing only left stories. I would also extend the Fairness Doctrine to all blogs and websites that mostly does politics. This is what I would like to see! Watch the video below, and think about it, should the Fairness Doctrine come back? Leave a comment below!
