McIlheran Watch: unFairness

Patrick McIlheran and the Brew City Brawler have been having a bit of back-and-forth about the fairness doctrine. I think the Brawler's winning, in part because of my anti-McIlheran bias, and in part because the Brawler seems to understand that the public airwaves do not exist solely to line the pockets of media conglomerates and stockholders. The word "public" actually has meaning.

However, I think it's becoming increasingly clear that everyone sees the "unfairness" currently promulgated by the right-wing yak hacks as a problem. For example, this is from a member of the US Senate:
Talk radio is running America. We have to deal with that problem.
Which wacked-out leftist communist socialist liberal Senator said that?

Trent Lott.

I suppose McIlheran will have words for ol' Trent. After all, if the Brawler can't get through to him, I doubt Lott could.
