NB #4: A Meta Look At Bias & The 'Fairness Doctrine'

My latest post for NewsBusters, examining a series of polls by Rasmussen on bias in the media, campaign finance and the so-called "Fairness Doctrine" is up. Check it out:
Polls: Public Dislikes Bias, Dems Want 'Fairness'
Even after looking at the numbers and reading liberal rantings on the interweb, I still don't get why the left is so infatuated with government regulation of the media.

The only conclusion I can come to is that they don't like free speech. They only like their speech. And they will impose speech codes at universities, and government control of the media, wrapped in euphemisms like the "Fairness Doctrine," to stifle everything else.
