2. When I was an undergrad in History we actually discussed it in a Philosophy class.

I remember arguing that it would be dangerous to lose it (all hypothetical at the time).

I never actually thought they would get rid of it.

We're paying for it, in spades.

3. More than a Fairness Doctrine is needed to fix this mess.

Isn't it ironic that Trump's pseudonym was David Dennison and that's very to his friend Sinclair Broadcast Group Chair David Deniston Smith?

4. Yes, at this point, more than a Fairness Doctrine is needed to fix this mess.

But if it had been kept intact I don't think we would have arrived this point.

6. Fairness doctrine was only for over the air broadcast

I don't think it would do all that much in this day and age.

7. I edited this.

Fairness Doctrine addressed the public airwaves, not privately owned cable infrastructure, etc.

So, I take your point.
