Rep. Clyburn Wants Fairness Doctrine Back

Rep. Jim Clyburn (S.C.), the third-ranking Democrat in Congress and father of FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, said Sunday the deadly shooting in Arizona should get the country thinking about what’s acceptable to say publicly and when people should keep their mouths shut. He wants standards put in place to guarantee balanced media coverage with a reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine.
