The Good Guys, the Bad Guys and the First Amendment : Free Speech Vs. Fairness in Broadcasting
Unlike newspapers, TV and radio broadcasting is subject to government regulation in the form of the FCC and the Fairness Doctrine, which requires stations to devote a reasonable amount of broadcast time to the discussion of controversial issues and to do so farily, in order to afford reasonable opportunity for opposing viewpoints. In this provocative book, Fred W. Friendly, former president of CBS News examines the complex and critical arguments both for and against the Fairness Doctrine by analyzing the legal battles it has provoked.
