Young Leaders Circle Forum with Brian Anderson

Wednesday September 2007


Brian Anderson Editor, City Journal

On September 5th, Brian Anderson, author of South Park Conservatives: The Revolt Against Liberal Media Bias, visited the YLC. Brian explained the history of the so-called Fairness Doctrine, President's Reagan wise decision to abolish it, and the tremendous growth in conservative media—and conservative political success—that followed. Brian discussed recent efforts to revive the Fairness Doctrine in a transparent effort to muzzle right-of-center voices on radio, cable television, and the internet, and a clear infringement of First Amendment rights.
