14. Bring back the Fairness doctrine.

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission's view, honest, equitable and balanced. The FCC decided to eliminate the Doctrine in 1987, and in August 2011 the FCC formally removed the language that implemented the Doctrine.[1]

Older voters remember a time when this was the practice. Growing up with Walter Cronite and the real 60 Minutes if I didn't have access to the internet I would believe the newcasters, espeicially since they are so goodlooking and nice.

Most LCD voters don't have access to the information we have.

They have fewer discretionary funds to spend on the internet and cable.
