Urgent Advice to Trump – Restore FCC Fairness Doctrine

Trump should IMMEDIATELY reinstate the Fairness Doctrine in the media that once existed at the FCC. The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to 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 eliminated the Fairness Doctrine in 1987 and in August of 2011, the FCC formally removed the language that implemented the Doctrine.
