Bush vows to veto any Fairness Doctrine


President George W. Bush was welcomed at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville yesterday as he delivered something the broadcasters wanted to hear – a pledge to veto any legislation to bring back the Fairness Doctrine. Bush told the gathering that such regulation would “stifle” the freedom of Christian broadcasters to spread their message. "We know who these advocates of so-called balance really have in their sights: shows hosted by people like Rush Limbaugh and James Dobson,” the President said. Rather, Bush told the Religious Broadcasters, “you are the balance.”
