I find myself not too happy with Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today. It appears that on Wednesday he went on to the liberal talk radio show of Bill Press and said?
BILL PRESS:? Alright, well good for you. You know, we gotta work on that, because they are just shutting down progressive talk from one city after another. All we want is, you know, some balance on the airwaves, that’s all. You know, we’re not going to take any of the conservative voices off the airwaves, but just make sure that there are a few progressives and liberals out there, right?
SENATOR TOM HARKIN (D-IA): Exactly, and that’s why we need the fair — that’s why we need the Fairness Doctrine back.

"As in past years, the Golden Globes proved that studios are far less concerned about entertaining people than they with indoctrinating them. Last night’s awards were a celebration — not of America’s values, but of Hollywood’s. Projects like The Kids Are All Right, Black Swan, Glee, and others were rewarded for pushing the cultural envelope or advancing a liberal political agenda. That may be how Hollywood defines ‘success,’ but it certainly isn’t how audiences do. Neither of those films cracked the top 49 in last year’s box office. In fact, The Kids Are All Right, which is the story of two lesbians raising a family, came in 113th in ticket sales. Toy Story 3, last year’s box office winner, made 21 times more money than Kids did. What’s more, Toy Story 3‘s $415,004,880 was more than all four R-rated nominees for Best Picture combined! Audiences want to be inspired and uplifted. They don’t want to spend two hours covering their kids’ eyes and ears." – Family Research Council Tony Perkins, via a press release which notes that he didn’t even watch the show.
