Obama: No Fairness Doctrine For Me


The good news: White House just says no to reviving the Fairness Doctrine:

President Obama opposes any move to bring back the so-called Fairness Doctrine, a spokesman told Wednesday. […]

"As the president stated during the campaign, he does not believe the Fairness Doctrine should be reinstated," White House spokesman Ben LaBolt said.

Bad news: As Managing Editor Jesse Walker explained in November, there are plenty of other ways the new administration will likely mismanage the Federal Communications Commission.
