Can anyone square the so-called "Fairness Act" with the following passage?

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Just wondering....

Arbitrary enforcement of the fairness doctrine will diminish vigorous debate. Thus, the result of the fairness doctrine in many cases would be to actually stifle the growth of disseminating views and, in effect, make free speech less free. This is a ploy by the
Democrats to shut down conservative talk radio. They can't stand it that Air America and most liberal talk shows have failed miserably. If anyone wants a different or opposing view, it's called CHANGING THE DIAL!!!!
