Nearly a quarter century since it stopped being enforced, the Fairness Doctrine is being formally stricken from the books. I'll be on WRVA in Richmond, Virginia -- that's 1140 on your AM dial -- at 8:05 tomorrow morning to take a look back at one of the Federal Communications Commission's more infamous restrictions on free expression. You can listen live here.
Some relevant stuff I've written:
"Tuning Out Free Speech" -- a history of the Fairness Doctrine.
"Beyond the Fairness Doctrine" -- more-current threats to radio and TV broadcasters' freedom of speech.
