The right wing talk radio celebrities are paranoid that the rising Democrats in power or a President Hillary would invoke some form of the ‘Fairness Doctrine’ in an effort to restrict the rhetoric on the AM airways. Such a doctrine is terrible idea and intentionally oppressive to free speech. It may be a good idea to invoke at NPR at least since it is government funded.
If the ‘fairness doctrine’ is invoked in the world of AM Radio I predict it will be a huge marketing boom for satellite radio. All those ditto heads and other fans of AM talk radio will likely find their favorite shows moving to a slightly different media even if they have to pay for it.
Talk radio is market driven. Right or wrong, good or bad, its enemies will find that market tough to control. Markets have a way of asserting themselves no matter what you do.
