Tell Senator Feinstein "Hands off free speech."

That headline could again be a legal campaign ad in the 60 days prior to an election thanks to SCOTUS beginning today to dismantle McCain-Feingold.

Censorious Senators, meanwhile, are attacking political speech on another front. Yesterday, while Sen. Feinstein was adding her voice to that of Senators Lott, Clinton and Boxer in favor of resuscitating the so-called "Fairness Doctrine," I pointed out that we already have a Liberal radio network, "...since there's already a government radio station, it's not like you have to listen to Rush for information about the Amnesty Bill."

Don't like conservative talk radio? Then listen to NPR, watch PBS, and leave the rest of us the hell alone. It's hard enough dealing with their bias already.

BUSTED: PBS Tells Producer Not To Hire Conservatives (Video)

The first thing they (PBS) told me- "Fire your partners... Because they are conservatives."
This would be fine if it occurred, which it does, on a private network like Air America or CNN. It's unconscionable that a broadcast network I'm forced to pay for does it while mealy mouthed politicians are thinking about "doing something" about talk radio.
