Christian broadcasters fear Fairness Doctrine return

Michael Foust writes at Baptist Press

Conservative attorney Jay Sekulow hosted a television program during the 1980s under the watchful eye of the now-extinct Fairness Doctrine, and he doesn’t want to go back . . . 

In repealing the rule, the FCC said at the time that instead of encouraging stations to present both sides of issues, the Fairness Doctrine had led those stations to avoid controversial issues altogether . . .
