(Un)Fairness Doctrine

Rep. Mike Pence (R-Indiana) has submitted a bill to specifically prohibit reinstating the Fairness Doctrine.

"The American people love a fair fight, especially where the issues of the day are debated. In a free market, fairness should be determined based upon equal opportunity, not equal results. As some voices are calling for Congress to enforce their idea of ‘fairness’ upon the American people, it would be good for us to proceed with caution whenever some would achieve their ‘fairness’ by limiting the freedom of others.
Ed's play-by-play appears to indicate that Pence has won. Yay.
