Democratic wishlist

I have a few things I would like to see. Some environmental responsibility, reform for No Child Left Behind, and a repeal of the Bush tax cuts. I don't know what we will see.

But this morning, I realized that I would love to see the Fairness Doctrine restored, or something close. Much of our political divisiveness can be traced back to the cessation of the doctrine. It created the careers of people like Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly.

But say that a fairness doctrine is out of the question, how about simply starting to question the media consolidation? That concerns me more than Blubbo talking on radio stations I don't listen to. In fact, media reform should be a talking point of some sort.

Better start on my letter to Nancy Pelosi....

I agree with you on media reform and fairness in coverage. Overhaul No Child if not do away with it altogether. Definitely get the mics out of Rush's and Bill's hands.

And hey, how about posting a copy of that letter to Speaker Pelosi when you're done with it???
