Conservatives Are Literally Insane, OMG TEH FAIRNESS DOCTRINE Edition

August 23rd, 2009at 12:01pm Posted by Eli

Apparently the FCC appointing someone with “no plans or interest” in restoring the Fairness Doctrine as its Chief Diversity Officer/Associate General Counsel is incontrovertible proof that Obama plans to restore the Fairness Doctrine JUST LIKE THEY’VE BEEN WARNING US ALL ALONG OMG.  The Michael Savage bit is my favorite:

The most absurd attacks have come from pundits like right-wing radio host Michael Savage, who has called Lloyd a “neo-Nazi” and “piece of garbage” intent on closing down “conservatives in the media.” He said that Lloyd’s title — Chief Diversity Officer — is “code word for the KGB.”

While it is certainly true that the KGB were renowned the world over for their maniacal commitment to diversity, I’m pretty sure they drew the line at neo-Nazis.

Chuck Grassley’s reaction to the appointment is the most telling, however:

I am concerned that despite his statements that the Fairness Doctrine is unnecessary, Mr. Lloyd supports a backdoor method of furthering the goals of the Fairness Doctrine by other means.

Um, aren’t “the goals of the Fairness Doctrine”… fairness?  Wasn’t its primary objective to minimize media bias?  So Chuck Grassley is actually admitting that he wants to preserve conservative media bias?  Wow.
