Fairness Doctrine and Ethics Reform in Broadcast

UPDATE. This is my Uncle Jack outside his Radio Station that he OWNED. I'm sure he is rolling in his grave over the vicious BULLYING in TV & Radio these days. This is a direct result in the dismantling of the Fairness Doctrine.

The Fairness Doctrine, implemented by the Federal Communications Commission in 1949, was overturned in 1987 & completely removed in August of 2011.

Why would Legislators dismantle the Fairness Doctrine?

Who could possibly be against FAIRNESS?

It's HOW & WHY a BULLY is in Washington. #ImpeachDonaldTrump

More on the Fairness Doctrine soon

Mandatory Ethics Certification is a REQUIREMENT for Insurance Agents like myself to be licensed. It is stunning that Individuals like myself are held to a higher ethical standard than our Elected Officials. It is stunning that individuals like myself are held to a higher ethical standard than BROADCASTERS, who like Insurance Agents have to be licensed .

Fairness Doctrine and Ethics Reform in Broadcast

What people may not understand when they turn on their TV & the "News" magically appears, is that TV Stations have to apply for a Broadcast License from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC.)

It is no secret that I have been calling for the Impeachment of what I deem to be a Fake President. There is one & only one issue that I am in 100% agreement with him on & that is THE CROOKED MEDIA.

He is right on this point.

The Fake President & the Crooked Media

Ironically hypocritical as the Crooked Media is how he got "elected" - people voting for a Cartoon Character after 8 years of watching The Apprentice on TV.

The Media Circus that created him, gave the lion's share of airtime in the 2016 Presidential Debates to a bully because the public could not look away from the Train-wreck that is the #ApprenticePresident.

This in turn, enabled Media Outlets to charge premium prices for the Advertising.

This is one of the many reasons I've been calling for complete & total ETHICS REFORM in this country at all levels of Government INCLUDING BROADCAST.

Today is 8/14/2019 - August 14, 2019.

In my opinion, WOMEN as a Class of People are SLANDERED EVERY DAY when people turn on their TVs.

The reason the viscous in the "News" has gotten so bad is the revocation of the Fairness Doctrine, implemented by the Federal Communications Commission in 1949, overturned in 1987 & completely removed in August of 2011. (See below)

https://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/Fairness+Doctrine

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission(FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was — in the Commission's view — honest,equitable, and balanced. The FCC eliminated the Doctrine in 1987, and in August 2011 the FCC formally removed the

language that implemented the Doctrine.[1]
