Jan. 7, 2009 Applauds Legislation to Protect Free Speech
Washington, D.C. applauds Senators DeMint and Thune and Representatives Pence and Walden for demonstrating their commitment to the principles of free speech and fair and open debate by introducing their Broadcaster Freedom Act (BFA). The BFA would prohibit the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from prescribing rules, regulations or policies that would result in the reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine – the requirement that broadcasters present opposing views on controversial issues. The DeMint/ Thune and the Pence/Walden bills would ensure true freedom and fairness would remain over our public airways. congratulates these members of Congress and their cosponsors for recognizing and protecting this vital American liberty – the right to free speech – and will work tirelessly to educate the public of the benefits of free speech, and the dangers associated with inhibiting free voices.

At this challenging time in our Nation’s history the importance of an unencumbered dialogue free and clear of unjust government intervention becomes even more essential with freedoms of American citizens being eroded daily. The reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine represents the first major step toward depriving Americans of their fundamental right to use their voice. Reinstatement of the Fairness Doctrine would be an imposition by government to dictate political, religious and moral views expressed over the broadcast airwaves.

This 501(c)(4) organization was founded by "we the people" to "secure the Blessings of Liberty" and ensure the preservation of our basic inalienable rights.
