    I worry that the overwhelming majority of progressives would have no desire for a new Fairness Doctrine if our side had 90% of the AM talk radio time. If so, this is not about the principle of balance and fairness, but about the fact that the wingers dominate AM talk. My big problem is who decides what is "fair". Political speech comes in many shades of gray. Who is it that decides that the grays have been fairly balanced? And the typical answer is that it would be an agency of the federal government, and I find that a slippery slope to censorship.
