Victor Davis Hanson is a lot more "correct" than Senator Feinstein

Diane Feinstein drags out the "fairness doctrine" again and Victor Davis Hanson throws the cold light of logic on that dangerous idiocy. Of course putting an educated thinker up against a blowhard from incumbistan is not a fair fight.

Unfortunately, Feinstein chose Orwellian logic to make her point: "I remember when there was a fairness doctrine, and I think there was much more serious correct reporting to people."

One wonders what Feinstein meant by "correct." Correct to whom? Democratic senators, a government auditor or New York Times editors? Aside from the central issue of stifling free speech, there are a number of things wrong with Sen. Feinstein's desire to have the government
arbitrate what is "fair" and "correct" on your car radio.
