Now John Kerry doesn't want equal time, go figure.

This morning on "Morning Joe", Senator John Kerry said the following,

"And I have to tell you, I say this to you politely. The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it's exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual."

"It doesn't deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what's real, of who's accountable, of who is not accountable, of who's real, who isn't, who's serious, who isn't?"

Keep in mind that this is the very same man who supported the idea of the bringing back the "Fairness Doctrine" that required broadcasters in America to "afford reasonable opportunity for the discussion of conflicting views of public importance."

John Kerry said back in 2007 on the Brian Lehrer show on WNYC, "I think the fairness doctrine ought to be there, and I also think equal time doctrine ought to come back,".

So in other words the left wants to force the networks to cover thier opinion but not the oppessing view point. Is that what fair means?

I always thought that fair meant getting equal treatment. Of course we all know that the fairness doctrine was really a tool to keep conservative views in check from the very beginning. It was never about getting both sides of the story it was about making sure that the left point of view dominated the airwaves. John Kerry is a special kind of hypocrite who doesn't even deserve to be taken seriously anymore. He should retire and write books about battles that never happened.
